Are you certain the cross-reference format is the same for all of them? IIRC, the names are case-sensitive ("Heading & Page" and "heading & page" are two different formats, and you may have mapped only one of them).

I can't think of anything else to look for offhand, but someone on the FrameUsers.com list might. Or maybe you've encountered a TCS4 bug that someone there knows about.
