I am having this problem as well, and so I thought I'd bump this topic
in case Gavin has solved it or anyone has any feedback on it.

I have several paged image collections and a photo collection. I
should note that the paged image collections are heavily customized
with HTML and CSS. When I search the (uncustomized) photo collection,
I see thumbnails from the paged image collections in the search
results, and those thumbnail photos are in the photo collection's
folder under index/assoc/HASH0122.dir/thumbnail.gif -- these files
themselves are the wrong thumbnails, but only the thumbnails seem
wrong (the full size and screenview seem fine).

I suspect there is something going wrong when the thumbnails are
generated during collection building, maybe with the tmp folder. but
I'm not sure exactly what's causing the cross pollination.

When building any of the image collections, it affects the paged-image collection in the following way: some, but not all, of the [ex.thumbicon]'s my SearchVList show thumbnail images from the image collection that was built, instead of the correct thumbnail images from the paged-image collection. Even more vexing, when I right-click on one of the "invading" thumbnails and select "View image", the resulting url shows that the thumbnail is in one of the paged-image HASH subdirectories!! Oddly enough, the VList for my browsing classifiers is unaffected.
