Yves, I've found that a sure-fire way to avoid netlist conflicts in this
situation is to create a second Schematic part for each IC to be
decoupled, changing its power pin Name from "VCC" or "VDD" to
something like "U25_PWR". Replace the original Sch component
with this part. This will netlist correctly to your decoupling 
components. Each Sch part so treated will have to have a unique 
name for its power pin, or they will all be lumped into the same net.
