Do the files contain text they 
precede the x-refs that give you trouble...

When updating text insets, they delete any x-ref 
markers that are placed at the beginning of a paragraph (:

My solution is to always create a r-ref marker 
for a paragraph before adding the text inset, 
moving the marker to elsewhere in the paragraph, 
and then adding the text inset. Then, all is well.

Good luck.
