Patch creation for web site project, content file components

Why does Installshield error on all the GUID components when creating a patch from the previous build?
An example is we added the content files of our web site project to the installer, this generates a bunch of GUID based components at build time. This works fine when building the full MSI but when we build the patch for the installer, we get lots of component removed errors, yet the components are still there. Is there a better way to handle the content files of a web project?

In last panel of the Release Wizard, when you're creating the new build, you'll want to browse for the previous package in the Previous Windows Installer package field. This is meant to help InstallShield match up those automatically generated component GUIDs when you add a bunch of files in subdirectories for the sake of creating patches.
