Firstly, try setting the option -remove_empty_classifications to the
build process and rebuild the collection.
If this doesn't work, then perhaps your build.txt (is this a hierarchy
file for the Hierarchy classifier?) is set up incorrectly.
Please send this file and your collect.cfg file (or the relevant parts
of each) to the list.
