Error building package. Error: Unable to locate category for : (Global Field Variable)

1) Created a new global field variable - WindBorneDebrisRegion.
2) Created a new revision of an existing table variable and used the field variable - WindBorneDebrisRegion as a table criteria.
3) Populated the table with data.
4) Tried to package the program and got "Error building package. Error: Unable to locate category for : (Global Field Variable) WindBorneDebrisRegion"
  (RateManager --> From Program Version--> Create Package --> PackageType = RateManager)

I think the dependency for the newly created global field variable is not created at package time to be used as a table criteria. However I could not resolve the issue.
When I added an existing global field variable as a criteria to the table, it works fine.
