Motion 5 not publishing to FCPX without restart

I did a clean install of Lion 10.7.1 and a clean install of FCPX and Motion 5. For some reason, when I publish a template generator effect from Motion 5, it does not show up FCPX unless I restart FCPX

If you make the text object a compound clip, than it acts as a typical video clip and you can add transitions to each end. But it looks like you can do a lot in the text object's inspector tab.
