[See this reply for a precise recipe for reproducing the bug:

[See this reply for workarounds:]

Externally edited images do disappear from the filmstrip when a filtered view is active.
To reproduce the problem:
1. Create several folders with several tiff images.
2. Import the images in Lightroom.
3. Add the 'flower' keyword to every image.
4. In the Library module, in the 'Keyword List' panel click the arrow right to the 'flower' keyword. This will make Lightroom to show all the images that has the keyword 'flower'.
Now comes the problem.
Edit one of the images on the filmstrip in PS (Ctrl+E). After changing the file and saving it, when returning to Lightroom the image disappears from the filmstrip.
When checking the image in the folder (clicking the correct folder in the Library) it shows up. When applying the 'flower' filter, the image isn't visible anymore.
