Family List erroneously lists adoptable profiles

On the Family List page, often profiles show up that say they are adoptable, but they have one or more profile managers.

A few examples that come up are Walden-372, Johnson-18342, Mayne-255, Knight-883 and Trulle-5.

I really like the Family List page for finding direct ancestors that are available to adopt, but it is frustrating when so many turn out not to be. Some on the list ARE truly adoptable, though, so it isn't every profile that is marked incorrectly.

Perhaps a flag is not being evaluated or reset properly...?

This was reported some time ago. Jamie Nelson was looking for a pattern in order to figure out what was going on.
Thanks Ellen. Hopefully with the inclusion of several profile ID's, Jamie will have more to go on to help discern a pattern.
This should be fixed now.
This is happening again/still, Jamie.

Thank you.
Thanks S, I'll take a look.

This problem is recurring again. I had about 10-15 profiles show up as adoptable which were not, when using the Family List for 12 generations.

Happened to me a couple of times.  Here are the ones today highlighted as adoptable, but then turn out not to be adoptable.  Unfortunately, they don't give the ID tags, just the names in the "not adoptable" message.

Marie P├ępin is not an orphaned profile.
Marguerite Fontaine is not an orphaned profile.
Marie Conille is not an orphaned profile.
Pierre Audet dit Lapointe is not an orphaned profile.
Marie Roy is not an orphaned profile.

Still happening. Also on the orphaned family list many of the highlighted profiles already have one or more managers.

This appears to be a problem that has not been resolved. I find dozens and dozens of profiles that show as being adoptable and they aren't. Of over a dozen I just clicked on, only one was actually orphaned.
