'Faces' is stuck?

I have a 'Face' that, when I enter the face through the corkboard, shows that that person 'may be in 32 additional photos'.  When I go to 'Confirm Additional Faces', it shows only 14 faces.  I confirm all faces and click 'Done'.  The Faces window still shows 32 additional photos, and clicking 'Confirm Additional Faces' still shows the same 14.


This is happening with several other 'Faces'.  I have done the following:


Run 'Detect Missing Faces'.

Went to each photo to add the face manually.  When leaving the photo and opening it again the face has not saved.

Noticed that many of these photos have been shared on Facebook.  Duplicated some and tried adding the faces to the duplicates - same result.

Repaired the library and repeated the above steps - same result.


Has anyone else had this problem and been able to fix it?  It's driving me crazy!
