In Lightroom 4 (as of tonight 4.1) on Mac OSX 10.6.8 I have created a smart collection to track files from which the metadata needs to be written to file/xmp and to do a batch save of metadata to xmp
The smart collection works fine except for the same 36 files that keep reappearing in the collection within seconds after cmd-a/cmd-s showing their "metadata has changed in lightroom" badge.
This is odd while the files are not touched in develop or anything else I am aware of. The affected files have, as far as I know, nothing really in common.
Files are RW2 and NEF raws, reside on a NAS or a striped local storage device, some are published to SmugMug others are not, few have captions and nothing has changed in the history panel.
Have any of you seen this behaviour or know what is going on?
Help is really appreciated.
