Appearance loads incorrectly in assembly.

I have been repeatedly having this appearance related issue within SolidWorks. I have a lot of parts where one face has an appearance from an image file. When I open an assembly with many of these parts, the appearances either do not load, or load skewed. By this, I mean that, if it is a rectangular face, it will load with one of the corners in the center. The obnoxious part of this issue is that if I right click the part and select "open part," it loads up the part itself with the appearance in the correct place and when I go back to the assembly it is fixed. This happens every time I load the assembly. Sometimes it even messes up the part's appearance.


I am running on 64 bit Vista with an ATI HD5570. What should I blame this on: Is this a common bug within SW? Is it my OS? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Any help is much appreciated.
