Temporary Fix for not being able to set products as Child in Virtuemart.

I don't seem to able set my products up as Child or Parent in the way should because of an 'Error: Saving the attribute failed.'  Error message.  Here's the forum post for my problem, its had over 500 views so I'm guessing I'm not the only person to have this error.

However I have got a bit of a work around to this.  The only thing that I'm really not happy with though is that all my child products ( ie all colour variations ) are listed in the category pages.  This is something I'll have to fix.

Here's what i'm doing though to get the products to look like this.

>> when editing you product go to 'Display Options' and in 'extra IDs'  and enter all the other Child product IDs here.

>> select the 'Use List box for child products '
