I use "include" in main.tex to add the chapters to my pdf. I have also several figures in my first chapter, they are tikz pictures that I define in separate files (figure.tikz for example) that I put in chapter1.tex with "input".

I reported one bug 6 weeks ago (I don't know if your problem is
caused by it too):
