Lightroom mobile: Wrong number of photos added to target collection


I have come across a strange issues with Collections today and wanted to share it here to see if anyone else has the same issue or if it's indeed supposed to work this way.

Here's my flow:

- I created a normal collection, set it as target collection and added 6 photos to it.
- I synced it with Lightroom Mobile and made it public.
- Then I went into the respective folder in Lightroom (not in the collection) and filtered the images so that it only shows flagged and unflagged and filtered by a certain keyword (in this case the name of the person i had added as keyword to some of the images), and only DNG files.
- There are 330 photos in this folder. With the applied filter, only 53 images were left to be shown.
- I wanted to add those 53 filtered images to the target collection so they get synced.
- I selected All (Ctrl+A) 53 images, then I hit the B key to add them to the target collection.

Here's where the strange thing happens. Instead of adding the 53 photos to the target collection, it added 401 photos. The number of photos in the collection becomes 401 (as shown next to the collection name) and the top panel of Lightroom shows Syncing 401 photos.

Obviously, I didn't want that happen so I hit Undo to undo the adding to the collection.

At the time of writing this message, I went again through the same steps and now it added 456 photos!

Clicking on the collection to see what photos were added, I see photos from another folder (and another collection) that I was browsing a few minutes earlier.

This is very strange and it doesn't really make sense to me. Does anyone have any idea as to why this may happen?
