Disconnect a Polymorphic VI from a lvlib?

Normal VI's have a File > Disconnect from Library menu item, but polymorphic VIs don't. If a poly is part of a lvlib, and the lvlib is deleted, the poly is broken with a "This VI is connected with a library that LabVIEW cannot find. Find and load the library or select File»Disconnect from Library" message. I don't have the original lvlib, and there's no File > Disconnect from Library menu item - how do I fix my poly?

Solution: save it under a new name - the new copy will be disconnected from the lvlib. I'd call that a bug.

Oddly enough, i hade that happen with the write to spreadsheet file. i lost all my polymorphic instances except one.

NI had me recopy the original lvlib from the CD to my computer and replaced the broken one with that. All was good.
