How do I keep Calibre LVS from getting confused between parallel paths?

I have a circuit that has parallel paths that end up in floating nets.



At a low level in the hiearchy, these blocks pass LVS, but as I get higher in the hierarchy, LVS starts swapping some of the wires and reporting mismatches.



The end points of these nets are not texted and are floating, so I am confused as to why LVS does not arbitrarily resolve the wire names.



The only solution I have found at this point is to "uniquify" one of the paths by inserting a metal resistor in both the layout and schematic.



Is there a switch or setting I can use so the Calibre LVS will resolve these types of paths?
