Links web part in page layout

I have a links list at the top level of my 2010 publishing site. I would like to insert it as a web part or dataview in my page layout, so that it is shown on all pages derived from that page layout. However, pages created in a subsite from this page layout give an error:

"List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It may have been deleted by another user."

I've tried saving the web part to the top level gallery, and whether I choose the option to always use the links from the top site or to use links relative to the current site, I get the same error.

So does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make this work?  It used to work in 2007.

Many thanks for your time.

Good old Laura! She's a gem.  I followed these instructions and voila! It works, even though the web part is inserted in a page layout.  

Thanks so much - this will make maintaining umpteen links so much easier for my end users.
