Split feature Custom properties issue (fromparent+)

I'm seeing an issue with my part files that I have created using the split feature.

After splitting the part and saving off the bodies, all my custom properties are entered in as "fromparent+" (see image).

 

Regardless of how I use this command (for example without copy custom properties selected), once the parent part has been opened and modified, this "fromparent+" overrides whatever new custom properties I have added to these new split body parts.

 

My Var cannot help me out with this issue. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and found a way to stop it?

 

 

I've ended up writing a macro just to continually re-enter the custom property information that should be in there.... which takes care of the issue, but is only acting like a bandaid to problem.
