Some advice please

First, love this hack (like all the work you devs do). I think I am doing something wrong, but not sure which step in my pathway is causing the issue.

My setup: Mac OS X with Calibre (0.9.7) with Kindle Collections GUI plugin used with KPW 5.3.1 (JB with screensavers and collections manager hacks installed).

Originally, I installed CM 2.2.1 on my JB 5.2.1 KPW and added all my books and used the kindle collections gui plugin to save my collections info on my KPW. I then imported my collections from calibre in the CM hack. Worked great, have all my collections and was able to hide those I don't want to show up and it looks awesome. I have since updated my KPW and the hacks to the latest versions.

Problem: now I connect my KPW to calibre and send new books to the KPW followed by saving the collections to the KPW using the GUI plugin in calibre. I disconnect my KPW and then run into problems with the new books not being sorted into the pre-existing collections. I figured I just have to re-"import calibre collections" from within CM, but this doesn't work. I have tried to restart before and after re-importing with no difference - the new books don't sort into collections and just sit on the home page with the heading of "new".

Sorry if there is an easy answer to this. I couldn't figure it out when I looked through this thread or the GUI kindle collections thread in the calibre forum. Not sure where my workflow is falling apart or if this is a problem between the KPW, CM, and the calibre plugin.

Any advice would be appreciated.
