Subject: [Use ?] Capture and Refile behavior

I have a capture template set to file to refile.org (my default container
for TODO tasks, notes (private, work, journal, blog) or other things.  That
way I can file them out to the right spot later . . especially if I don't
have the file or location setup or am not sure which location I am going to
handle that item under.  However, at times I use C-c C-w and refile them
directly to the location I want them . . . Capture worked different than I
am used to remember working.

So, I used C-c c last night to put a TODO in my agenda for my english

* TODO English Reading Assignments                        :ENGL101:
** TODO Reading assignment 1
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>
** TODO Reading assignment 2
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>
** TODO Reding assignment 3
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>

When I type C-c C-w to refile it into Homework (engl101.org) it files
 ** TODO Reding assignment 3
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>
the last assignement, to the right location
but the
 * TODO English Reading Assignments                        :ENGL101:
** TODO Reading assignment 1
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>
** TODO Reading assignment 2
   DEADLINE:<2011-03-14 19:05>

goes into the refile.org (the default target for the capture template)

In other words, it is only sending, like it is reading from the bottom up
until it hits a headline and then refiling that part but throwing the rest
to the default?  Odd behavior as at times I will catch assignments and make
multiple TODO's (same headline level or lower) in a remember and now that I
am on capture unless I have a TODO for each bucket their isn't a way to pick
the destination..  Or at times I use it for class notes and make a hiearchy
out of that and have the heiarchy it refiled in a date-tree.

Thoughts?  or am I just goofing something up?
