Custom BCS indexing connector with changelog inremental crawl is not working properly

I am writing a custom indexing connector using changelog incremental crawl approach. I'm using sample from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff625800%28v=office.14%29.aspx and trying to change it for me.

My model has next stereotypes: IdEnumerator, ChangedIdEnumerator, DeletedIdEnumerator, SpecificFinder, Finder, StreamAccessor

If I'm starting full crawl, IdEnumerator, ChangedIdEnumerator, DeletedIdEnumerator will be called.

First problem: the SpecificFinder is not called.

If I'm starting incremental crawl, ChangedIdEnumerator and DeletedIdEnumerator will be called.

DeletedIdEnumerator is working: items with deleted ids are deleted from the index.

Second problem: ChangedIdEnumerator is not working. Nothing happens after I returned the changed ids.

There are now errors in the crowl log.

My model is here:
