This is what I was thinking: the problem is, when I tried it didn't work.
I started a fresh new collection with: --image-directory=/path_to_my/images/

so that I could work with the php client.
Everything worked out fine, the url2fts.xml file reported the correct
images/features URI.

The I copied an image from somewhere in the filesystem to
/path_to_my/images/ and issued again the previous command.

The output seemed to do the right thing, passing by on the already
indexed images and working on the new_image.

This time, the url2fts.xml file reported just the last indexed image,
all the other weren't there anymore!

Tested with the php client, there is just the last indexed image in my

What went wrong?
