Problem renaming parts

When using "Solidworks Rename", the parent assembly is not always updated. Isn't the point of SW rename to update all the references so there are no broken links? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. If I have to rename a large group of parts, I have to do them one-at-a-time (SW renamee, then open the parent assembly to make sure the link isn't broken, if it is, fix it) otherwise it's impossible to remember how to fix all the links.
