I've just realized that in some cases this is not working correctly. In
particular, if Eeschema was not able to load all the libraries (it shows
a window on startup saying "The following libraries could not be
found"), then imported items will not be drawn correctly (they appear as
a box with a question mark).

In order to fix the patch I'd like to ask about the relation between
schema files and components. When you use a component in a sheet, is the
component information saved to the .sch file? If so, I guess that
loading this information would be enough to fix the problem.
