    I just asked for 32058-32245 and in no case was there a more recent one in 
    'Last 5'.
    Could it be that the database was updated between your 'Latest' and 
    (following?) 'Last 5' ?
    Or that they are (re-)setting a flag for each 'latest' elset, some time 
    after the update itself.
