Lightroom: print collections not exporting correctly

I'm working with LR 3.4 on a Mac with the latest camera raw and any current updates as required I've encountered the following problem.

When I export a print collection it reverts to a standard collection with no layout information when imported back into a different catalogue. The physical files are retained but the print layout is lost and the interface icon for a print collection changes to show that it is no longer a print (layout) collection.

Part of my workflow entails prepping my best (IMO) images for my portfolio gallery. The way I do this is to gather the images into a collection set, then create individual print collections with, say two or three images to a page, with borders etc. I then print to file as hires JPEGs, because we can't export from the print module, import into Photoshop to add a watermark via an action (I know this can be done in LR but I want only one watermark per image set not one per image) ready to upload to an online gallery. I prefer to use individual catalogues for each client or shoot and archive when completed. So my method is to export my best 'picks' to a new temporary catalogue from the working catalogue, and then import the temporary catalogue contents back into a specific gallery catalogue. This way I have my best work in one place and can maintain and vary the portfolio gallery as I choose.

No matter which route I've tried so far, I've only managed to export/retain the collection contents and not the print layout itself.

I exported a collection set for a seminar I was conducting and I got about 2/3 of what was inside the collection set. LR randomly (it appears) picked and chose what to export within the collection set. Needless to say, I had to scramble to provide curriculum for my class. Also, I noticed a LR3 Beta phenomena come back: click on a collection set and no underlying images show. Catalog has been optimized and plist deleted; same results.
