Replace fitting error

I've seen a post the other day on the Autodesk Inventor forum regarding an error that the program throws when trying to replace fittings. The error is "Replace fitting error!"

You will notice if your parts are authored fittings if the thumbnail in the assembly browser looks like a blue tee.
