Sorry, that response was *almost* incoherent. :-)

Trying again:

As far as how MCF computes incremental changes, it does not matter whether
a job is run on schedule, or manually.  But if you change certain aspects
of the job, namely the document specification information, MCF "starts
over" at the beginning of time.  It needs to do that because you might well
have made changes to the document specification that could change the way
documents are indexed.
