    Single sourced topics in webhelp, complete child topic links

    Hi,
    I use XMetaL Author Enterprise for Documentum webtop, Version#: 2.1.0.084.
    When I create a webhelp of a manual that has several singlesourced topics, something strange happens. The children topic links, that automatically are created in the html under the current topic text, do not only link to the children topic to this specific instance. Instead, all children topic to any singlesourced topic are listed at all instances. 

    A small scale example:
    In chapter 1, subchapter 1A, topic 1 is a parent to topic A, B and C.
    In chapter 2, subchapter 2B, topic 1 is a parent to topic D and E.
    In the right hand pane of webhelp, topic 1 in chapter 1 is displayed. First the topic text, and then automated links to topics A, B, C, D and E. Moreover, in the bottom of the pane, all parents are displayed (subchapter 1A and subchapter 2B)

    Why?
