[Koha] bulk BiblioAddsAuthorities?

I have similar problems (Koha 323 on Debian 6). 
In my opinion, Pete, your auth records are good, since they are imported and indexed correctly.
The fault seems to be in link_bibs_to_authorities.pl. Debugging it, I think that C4/Heading.pm adds too much query limiters when trying to find an authority entry starting from values stored in biblio fields. For instance, in the case of authors, the limiter 
"AND Heading-use-main-or-added-entry=a"
introduces the error.
So I commented out lines 142-152 of C4/Heading.pm and every author was correctly linked to its own authority.
Up to now I don't know it this is a known bug or if Koha 325 solves it.
