Hmm! I am on Windows XP SP3. I will watch out for it the next import of a group of titles.

I watched what happens.
When you assign or change a series name, it assumes the next HIGHEST index for that series, regardless of it's setting. As soon as you touch the index, it jumps to the highest+1 .
This is happening on a Single title Meta-Data edit. The books added were not all the same series or belonged to a non-ordered series [0]
