Configurable products and their associated products are no longer connected after product import.

I’m trying to manage about 200 SKUs and most of these are for configurable products with about 3-5 simple products they connect to.  The site seems to be working fine but when I export all products, change some information in the CSV file and then re-import it the configurable products are no longer connected to their respective simple products.  When I open a configurable product for the first time after an import I’m asked again what the primary selector is (size, manufacturer, color) and once I choose this I’m taken back to the product edit page and all the associated products that were previous there have disappeared.

This problem essentially makes the product import / export feature completely useless since I’m forced to manually “fix” the connection after any product import.  Does anyone know how to correct this?
