problem with xreffing profile into another drawing

Hello all, 


I'm having issues with profiles. We are xreffing them into another drawing, and their behavior is erratic. Random elements of the profile view are turning on and off in the xreffed drawing. All layers are thawed and on. Sometimes it displays fine. most of the time it does not. Vizretain is set to 0. the profile views are on the 0 layer. Any thoughts? Has anyone seen this before?

VISRETAIN should be set to 1 to keep your xref'd layers saved.  If it's set to 0, every time you open the file it's being xref'd into, the layers will revert to the layer states from the xref's last save.


I hope that made sense...
