I have a weird problem. My subsections are numbered like this:

Chapter 1: Subsection 1.0.1 Subsection 1.0.2 Subsection 1.0.3

Chapter 2: Subsection 2.0.4 Subsection 2.0.5

...

Chapter X: Subsection X.0.

I have no idea how to start fixing this error. The only warning I get is:

Chapter1.tex(1): Underfull \vbox (badness 10000) has occurred while \output is    activepdfTeX warning (ext4): destination with the same identifier (name{page.1}) has been       already used, duplicate ignored
Chapter1.tex(26): destination with the same identifier (name{page.2}) has been already used, duplicate ignored

but I doubt it has anything to do with the problem. Appreciate any ideas.

    The level below \chapter is \section. – egreg Sep 16 '11 at 23:19

You are using the sectioning commands \chapter (level 0) and \subsection (level 2), but not the "in-between" command \section (level 1). This is rather uncommon and possibly a misunderstandng on your part.

If you insist on using \subsection this way, you have to reset the subsection counter manually immediately after the start of a new \chapter. See Resetting theorem counters: \section and (missing) \subsection for an explanation.

\documentclass{report}

\begin{document}

\chapter{bla}

\setcounter{subsection}{0}

\subsection{blubb}

\chapter{foo}

\setcounter{subsection}{0}

\subsection{bar}

\end{document}
