I am working on a simmilar design at the moment, and it seems that if you
place the components in the order that the parts were created in things seem
to work happliy enough.
To start with whenever I reannotated the design all the part numbers would
seeming swap of their own accord, but this seemed to help.

I also gave up on the 'group parts together if matched by' stuff.

Good luck
