Chris & Christian,
Details are needed. I'll ask the obvious. Is your NewsItem
Catalogaware? If not, then is it failing with a manual update?   

I just (last 2-3 days) referred to 'The Book' about some
cataloging issues and found it to be very helpful.  I am indexing
ZClass properties too.  I have not used a Python Script to return
an item to index yet though. This is using 2.3.2 as well.
