Eliminate PAX error in Design Mode

My client uses Design mode to build reports based off a 20 dimension cube. This way it does not recalculate each time something is dragged in or the context changes. An issue arises where the user drags in the dimenion on the rows and then goes to edit the set. An error pops up saying the query could not complete. They believe there should be no error and the elements should show up. The current workaround is to drag in a pre created subset and edit from there.

Why is it useful?
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customers will benefit so it won't take as long to set up reports and explorations.
How should it work?

1. I believe the product should not spit out an error in design mode when the dimension is dragged in and the user goes to edit the set.

2. No error for a user brings ease and it allows my client to create the reports needed and waste little time.

3. We are using pre created subsets and editing them from there so they don't get an error.

    The set editor is having an issue rendering the right hand pane for some reason.  I do not think this is specific to the design mode.  I have tried to reproduce this error generically against sample data and am not able to.  I would contact support and log a case for investigation.

    This seems like a logical request, and an odd error
