Virtual parts causing duplicate rows

Unfortunately, I have a unique circumstance where I have to make parts virtual and add a material within the assembly file. 


I can bring in a part virtually, and control click another copy, with no issues and the quantity will just update without an issue.


If I bring in the same exact part again, virtually, and apply the same material, a new row will populate in the BOM.  All the information is exactly the same but it creates a new row.  The only difference is in the tree, where we go from a prefix of "Copy" for the first set of parts brought into the assy, to "Copy (2)" for the second one brought in. 


Is there something obvious I am missing?
