I've been working with some of the data files that Hoop previously provided for 
me (SST for a few years, with two different length versions for 2012) to 
reproduce the issue in fmrc that manifests.  Basically, I set up a collection 
with full years 2009-2011 and a partial year for 2012 (through May 13=4, 2012). 
 I fire up the tds, look at the collection, etc.  Then I switch the 2012 file 
for one that goes through May 15, 2012.  I've found a couple of interesting 

First off, it appears that fmrc is working in the current release of tds 4.2.  
However, there is an error in updating catalog metadata, which results in a 
catalog page that appears out of date, i.e., it appears not to pick up the 
modified file.  However, clicking through to an access page (opendap in this 
case) reveals that the changes have been picked up by the tds.  This is also 
evidenced looking at the collection with toolsui.

Second, there seem to be a couple of gotchas in play, perhaps environmental.  I 
have been battling some sort a shadow issue that manifests from time to time.  
It is possible that you are seeing this in your installation, as well.  To see 
if this is the case, we would need to look at a fresh set of log files from the 
current stable tds release - particularly the featureCollectionScan.log and 
others in /content/thredds/logs.

Here is the snippet from my catalog for the fmrc:

<featureCollection featureType="FMRC" name="hoop_issue" harvest="true" 
    <metadata inherited="true">
      <documentation type="summary">Constantly changed and updated modeled sea 
surface temperatures</documentation>
    <collection spec="/C:/Users/madry/hoop2/sst.day.mean.#yyyy#.v2.nc$" 
name="modeled_SST" olderThan="1 min"/> 
    <update startup="true" rescan="0 * * * * ? *" trigger="allow"/>
    <protoDataset choice="Penultimate" change="0 2 3 * * ? *" />
    <fmrcConfig regularize="false" datasetTypes="TwoD Best Files Runs 
ConstantForecasts ConstantOffsets" />
It would be good to establish whether the behavior that I have observed 
manifests in your configuration.
