[Zope] Catalog a dictionary

Hi Andreas,

what I'm trying to do is indexing in a Catalog some Folder objects manipulating some properties.

If I assign to the request the new key value everything works as expected.
For instance:

for obj in context.objectValues('Folder'):
	req.set('city', obj.city+' '+obj.province)
	req.set('id', ('/').join(obj.getPhysicalPath()))

I was just wondering why I am not able to get the same results (only the id get indexed but not the city) building and indexing dictionaries in the following way:

for obj in context.objectValues('Folder'):
	D['id'] =  ('/').join(obj.getPhysicalPath())
	D['city'] = obj.city+' '+obj.province

And yes, the indexes name are the same and they are listed in the catalog.

P.S. I know i can assign multiple attributes to an index in the catalog, still I wonder why the above code doesn't work.

Thanks for your help,
