Here you are wrong i think. When you import back from NX to DK, you
must force DB to be updated and take a care about metadata change done
by NX. It's simple : use menu entry Image/Sync DB with metadata.

Note : You can do it in Batch now using dedicated Maintenance tools
which use multithreading and multicore CPU with 3.4.0...

See my previous comment which can be the solution.
