Seed drive consumption blocks replication for seeded machines?

I'm backing up 4 new machines(VMs).  and I have 4 existing.  I made the Seed drive for the 4 new machines(took days), drove to DR site, plugged in and I'm now consuming Seed drive.  BUT it looks like the replication job for the 4 new machines is waiting for Seed drive to finish consuming?? (existing 4 are replicating fine) it will take about 5 more days!  while I was creating the seed drive replication from 4 new worked perfectly.  is this behavior normal?  I fear that after 5 days of consumption there will be enough changed data (due to no replication) that something will get marked for New Base image.  that would defeat the whole purpose.
