Crystal Report 8.5 and SubReports

If you have a linked sub report in Main Crystal Report, every time you open the main report, it re imports the sub report if it founds the sub report in the same location. This is despite the fact that Re-import Subreports when Opening Reports check box is unchecked.

This seems to me a bug. Similar bug in Crystal 10 has been reported on businessobject support web site.

Clearing the 'Re-import Subreport on Open' check box does not work (c2017466)

This creates a annoying behavior, as Crystal report will remove the links between main report and sub report. Only workaround I have found is to rename the sub reports or move them to other folders, once they are imported in main report. If Crystal Report does not find the sub report in the original location, it does not re import the sub report.

If any body has encountered the similar issues, please post it in the comments section.
