Trouble with a Sweep for a Quadrupole Winding

I am trying to sweep a circular porfile along a rather busy curve that represents a quadrupole winding (Four coils, one wire). The preview sweep goes a little haywire and none of the avaiable options allow me to keep it on the path. If I just do it for one coil of the four, I can get it straight by selecting "twist along path". I need to get it to work for a fully connected multipole coil though.

Below are some images of the path, and the sweep preview showing the wobbly deviations.

Any ideas if SolidWorks has asolution to this?
