Image assets assigned to categories are being deleted

I've created a category template which contains an image field. It seems that after a few days, the image assets that are uploaded through this template are being erased. Here's the template:

<li style="margin-left: <perch:category id="catDepth" type="hidden" />0px;">
    <h4><perch:category id="catTitle" type="smarttext" label="Title" required="true" /></h4>
    <perch:category id="catSlug" type="slug" for="catTitle" suppress="true" />
    <perch:category type="color" id="color" required="true" label="Color" />
    <perch:category type="image" id="image" label="Image" width="500" help="Please use transparent PNG format" bucket="Briefing Icons" />

This is on Perch 2.8.6, though I didn't see anything related mentioned in the latest update notes. Diagnostics:

Is there any reason not to update?

None other than I like to set aside time to bug test after updating. Do you think it might fix this issue?

I'm not sure without further investigation.

Alright, I've updated. I also removed a space from the bucket I think I remember that giving me problems in the past. I'll upload the images again and report back if the problem persists.

This is still happening. It seems to me that Perch is unaware that the images are being utilized in the category templates and is marking them for deletion...which happens after several edits are made.

Ok, we'll take a look at it.

Great, thanks Drew! Hoping to launch this early next week. Please keep me updated and let me know if there's anything else you need from me.

Edit: isn't it like midnight where you are? When do you sleep?! :)
