Ha, I guess someone else was having the same question about this problem. Well, I was doing some more digging after posting, and found these service bulletins on a 6-series web site. I am attaching them as PDFs.
If you're having this problem, you might want to print out the bulletins and take them in to the dealer. You shouldn't have to live with resetting the stupid thing all the time. But that's just my opinion.
