[Classweb-users] problem with geographic cutters in search

Is Classweb having problems with the geographic and topical cutters in the
Hierarchy Classification Browser? When I search for a class number
involving a specific geographic cutter, the result now takes me to the
general classification, A-Z.
For example, when I try searching with G1403 D25 (Atlases. By region ...
Indiana. Counties, A-Z. De Kalb), the browser takes me to Indiana.
Counties, A-Z, rather than to the specific county (De Kalb).
Even more puzzling and frustrating have been the problems with topical
cutter searches. One of my colleagues encountered several examples today
while using the K and N schedules. She searched under KPV78 B, expecting
the search to result in KPV78 B87 (Asia (South Asia. Southeast Asia. East
Asia): Vietnam--Manuals and other works for particular groups of users. By
user, A-Z. Businesspeople). Instead it pulled up KPV0-4999 (Asia (South
Asia. Southeast Asia. East Asia): Vietnam--General.
