Default Duplicating a group, that contains a 3d placement node.

Hi all,

I have an eyeball. It is grouped to a 3d placement node, that projects it's texture onto it's surface. I want to duplicate it. When I duplicate it and move it off to one side, it seems fine.

but, when I select and move my original group, the texture begins to slide on the duplicate. Moving the duplicate's own texture projection node does nothing.

What has gone wrong? I have considered converting to file textures, but I end up wasting a lot of the texture space (since it is projected through, I get the front on one side of the texture and the back on the other.).

Here's an image,

I would just bake the texture and leave it as that.
