CRM 2011/2013 Reset Sitemap problem

As you might have seen from previous posts on my blog, I am a big fan of the XrmToolBox by Tanguy, especially the Sitemap editor is excellent in its simplicity and capabilities.

However, I recently ran into a problem after using the function:
Reset CRM 2013 SiteMap to default.





After removing the Solution A sitemap elements, which is the result of the reset action, the system “remembers” that I do not want to see them, even after new import of the managed solution.



The only way I have found to solve this is to manually edit the sitemap and reintroduce the sitemap elements from Solution A into the system. After that, the Solution A entities appear as expected. Managed export of Solution B now shows nothing at all, which is correct. I can then get back to adding my own new entities.


Additional Problem

The solution above is possible if I have access to an unmanaged version of Solution A, but if this is something from a third party it might not be that easy to generate corresponding sitemap xml from the managed solution file.
