I have created a managed metadata column in a library and pointed it to a term set. I uploaded a single document and tagged it.

I have turned on the metadata navigation for this particular column.

in the navigation, when I click on the highest-level term and include all of the child terms, I get no results. I'm certain I have selected all child terms based on the fact that they are highlighted.

when I drill down in the metadata navigation and click on the exact child term I now see my document.

This particular child term is 4 levels deep.

Any ideas why I can't see the document when I click on the highest-level parent term?
