It appears that the problem involves stn files (a compressed image
format) and maybe MS indexing. And if I exclude stn files from
indexing and then go back in to that window, it is checked again to be
included in indexing. Can't find a way to get indexing to exclude
these files.

If I do the same steps using just the tiff files on the CD I have no
problems.
