Tagged profile not showing on category page. Why is that?

Dutchess County, New York is named after this woman. So I added the "Namesakes US Counties" category tag. But it doesn't show up on the Category page:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Namesakes_US_Counties

It does show on the category page for another category on the same profile. So it isn't obvious that the system won't accept an apostrophe. What gives? Is there anything to be done about it?

Similar problem with this profile, namesake for Orleans Parish in Louisiana and Orleans County in New York. Again with an apostrophe. Also, the last two profiles on the first page of the category repeat at the top of the second page. As if they were filling the slots for the two profiles beginning in with d'. In a similar vein, the tags line for this post won't accept d'este, displaying as deste instead. Perhaps these little irregularities are related?

Enter the tag as d_este.

In the category listing, she shows up at the end of the Ds after Dyer, or at the bottom right hand corner of the page, depending on whether you're paging forwards or backwards.

.
Well, now she's there, along with d'Orleans. Between Dinwiddie and Dodge. Not where I'd put them in alphabetical order, but it's there. And the Dodges are no longer listed twice. No longer a problem, but still a mystery.

At the time of writing, if I start the page at Alcuin,

https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Category:Namesakes_US_Counties&from=Al

she disappears.  Not on that page, not on the next.  But if I step forward another page, then back, she pops up.

This will change as more profiles are added to the category.

 

 

Yes, it's a little dodgy, isn't it?
It's still "a little dodgy." I wonder if there's a cure for this bug...
I'll add it to our bug list to look into the next time we're tweaking categories. Thanks, all.
