Scaling issue when moving extrusions

Hi, I'm trying create some roots.
Currently I extrude a polygon along a curve, and it's looking pretty good. The problem is just when I've finished creating the root, I want to move it, but it looks like crap. Everything seems to move differently.

Here's a screenshot:

Any ideas? I really want to do the uv mapping just once, then create all the roots

edit: What I said below doesn't actually seem to work. I just tested it and the only way I can get them to move together correctly is to delete the history on the root mesh, but then the curve will no longer affect the shape of the root. If you want the curve to still affect the root, you can move the mesh itself, but the curve has to stay where it was created. Doesn't seem to matter whether the curve or mesh has its transformations frozen either, this must be a bug.

It looks like you have the curve and the root selected in the outliner, if you move that "RootTemplate" group that the curve and extruded mesh are in, they should move together properly.
