Weldment not updating in an assembly

Hello all,

   I recently started playing around with weldments, and am loving the level of automation they can provide.  However, I inserted a door weldment into an assembly so I could add hinges and other hardware, and now my weldment will not update in the assembly.  I had edited the door to have a couple extra cross ribs and changed the locations, but the door will simply not update in the assembly.  If i open the door from the assembly, it shows the updated part.


Also, I'm having the same issue with my weldment profiles.  If I update the properties in a profile, I cannot get the properties to update in the weldment cut list.  The only way I've been able to do so is to edit the structural member, select a different profile, then select the correct profile.  When i do this it often messes up all of my cuts because they lose references.


I've tried rebooting SolidWorks to no avail.  Is this a bug in solidworks, or am I missing a setting or something?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
