Exterior Wall Offset Family Issue

I am creating a folding door model and would like to use a parameter called EXERIOR WALL OFFSET. I have used this parameter before but am having trouble getting it to work within my family. The only difference is that I created one frame/jamb instead of 4 seperate profiles. The question is, why can't i get the jamb to move within the wall using the exterior wall offset parameter? Can anyone help me with this or give me a resource that can help? It seems to move the sash/panels just fine but the jamb is constrainted somehow.

The problem appears to be coming from the sweep being disassociated from a plane.  A sweeps location does not appear to be controllable from the "skin" (aka the profiles edges) but must be controlled by the "paths" location.

 

If that doesn't make sense maybe this will help: http://vimeo.com/32977654

 

Good Luck
