It's definitely possible to have documents at higher levels
as well as deeper levels at the same time, so I'm not quite sure
what is wrong here. It could possibly be a problem with your
index file or the just formatting - have you modified the format string
for that classifier? It could also be a bug - which
version and platform are you using?
