Hi Andreas,

What helped me was what I wrote below (deleting a file in zim shown as existing 
in zim even though it was not in that place in the file system anymore).

b) didn't work. I tried many times before and after many complete restarts of 
zim. Next time, I would try your a).

Thank you - I enjoy zim a lot :)

Obviously the index is broken. Try:

    a) rm .zim/*    # within your top level dir of your zim book
       # note, this dir may also be in your cache tree (see help):
       # ~/.cache/zim/...
    b) rebuild index
       zim --index <notebook-dir>
       # or, just start zim as usual and call  Tools - Update Index

Hi all,

in my shell, I moved page by page and folder by folder out of the misbehaving zim 
subtree. It turned out that after I had moved one of those pages and its folder out of 
the zim folder, the page was still shown in zim (and not virtual / italic), but I could 
not find it in the actual folder on my computer in the shell. I deleted that 
"strange" real-in-zim but not-existing-in-shell page from within zim, moved the 
actually existing counterpart back into the zim folder by shell, and the index was 
behaving again.

Sorry for disturbing you all - it seems Murphy wanted me to mail to all of just 
before I found a solution. Maybe it helps someone else in the same situation.
