Lightroom: "Sync" only works for the next 10-20 images

In the Develop module, if I make a change (for example, set White Clipping to 30), then select a large number of photos and use Sync to apply the change to all of them, it applies to about the next 10-20 images and not the ones after that. This has happened in many different catalogs and with many different types of changes. Any thoughts please?

SOLUTION

OMG, I have had this problem for months and NO ONE has been able to help.
I can report that I have finally found out what the problem is and a fix to the problem.
To FIX THE PROBLEM of lightroom not syncing changes across multiple images is to Purge the Cache.
Go to Edit, Preferences. Under the Camera Raw Cache Settings, click the Purge Cache button. Problem fixed.
Now we need to ask Adobe to fix this in future updates so that Cache does not have this problem.

Feel free to send me some money via paypal for beer to robholding at hotmail.com
