When creating components for the reuse library can they be assemblies?  I have made a milling vise assembly, using expressions to control clamp distance, jaw size, etc.  It seems to work great after I define it as a reusable component, until I restart NX.  After restarting when I try to bring it in NX starts searching for something.  I'm not sure what it's looking for I just see it endlessly searching for something in the status bar.  Other components that I have made which are not assemblies don't have this problem.
