[Plugin: WP-eDel post copies] Not scanning/deleting 3rd level categories (2 posts)

    At first I just dismissed this as a generic bug without looking into what was specifically going on.

    When I click on all categories for example and then have it scan for dupes the page refreshes with zero dupes found but I notice that only the first and second level cats are checked off in the list. Infact it won't even check off the 2nd level cat that has a category underneath it.

    So for example I have a category structure like this:

    City-->Restaurants-->Restaurants1

    In this case City will remain checked, but restaurants or Restaurants1 will uncheck themselves.

    I have other 2nd level cats like news and jobs and those remain checked as they are not the parents of further categories. Because of this the plugin can not find the 1000's of dupes that lie within the 3rd level of categories

    Ok, this doesn't seem to be related to the level the category is in. The plugin seems to be purposefully de-selecting certain categories and i'm not entirely sure why.. Is it possible that this plugin cannot handle categories with more than a couple 100 posts in them? Because I just try to move 3 3rd level cats up one level and then select them for dupe scan and it did the same thing.. After I press go the page refreshes with zero duplicates found and all of the categories with 1 or 2 posts in them are selected in the box while the 3 categories with around 400 posts each(the ONLY cats I initially selected) are now de-selected.

    I am looking at 2 duplicate posts right now and can see many many more, why the plugin doesn't see them I don't know
