Check out the reference designator modifier server from Qualecad.

Many people have said it has helped them heaps with multichannel designs.

I do not think that making a library part of a collection of components is 
a good idea due to precisely the issue you saw and the further side effects 
(that is BOM, partslist, pick and place etc are all a bit screwy).  If a 
component is a separate component/assy on the board then one should be very 
careful about using anything other than a simple component on the Sch and 
PCB - unless you are very aware of all the implications.  At least that is 
my opinion.
