EMPOWER ports auto-inserted

I've just upgraded my GENESYS from v2006.10 to v2007.08.  The newer GENESYS handles the link between a DESIGN and a LAYOUT a little differently than the older GENESYS.  

In particular, standard ports in the DESIGN are now automatically converted to (what look like) EMPOWER ports in the layout.  However, they don't seem to work properly as EMPOWER ports.  

My workaround was to specify in the DESIGN "Layout Options" for the port to "Replace Part with Open" (then they don't appear in the LAYOUT).  Then, I add the EMPOWER ports manually into the LAYOUT from the parts toolbar (the old fashion way).
