When multiple Blog Holders exist within a the site tree -

Blog Entries appear in CMS Site Tree under the Holder to which they were assigned, but upon checking SiteTree_Live in the database the ParentID for these pages is actually a different BlogHolder. In this case, a completely different branch of the Site Tree. The Site Tree is something like this -

SiteTree

-BlogTree 1
--BlogTree 1a
---BlogHolder 1a-1
----BlogEntry(s)
---BlogHolder 1a-2
----BlogEntry(s)
--BlogTree 1b
<--- similar to BlogTree 1a --->

-BlogHolder 2
--BlogEntry(s)

So, for example, Blog Entries added to BlogHolder 1a-1, show up in the correct place in the SiteTree in the CMS, but in the DB some have the ParentID of BlogHolder 2. I've tried numerous flushes to see if I can get the SiteTree to match the DB, but the inconsistencies persist.

One, fairly simple solution would be to create separate Blog classess for BlogTree 1 node, but I'm wondering if SS3 and/or the Blog module is not intended to work with multiple Blog Holders or if this is a bug?

Thanks,
