Is there a workaround to use GUIs created with GUIDE inside a namespace?

I run into the problem GUIs created with GUIDE cannot be placed inside a namespace.
For example, i have a namespace folder +ns which contains gui.fig and the corresponding gui.m.
Now, when I run
>> +ns.gui
It fails because this command starts +ns.gui.m which then searches for gui.fig which it can't find because it's hidden in the namespace...
Has anyone figured out a way around this? Is there an edit we can make to the boilerplate code that GUIDE creates so that it looks in the same namespace that the gui.m is in?
Thanks in advance.
I pasted the full error below, mostly to facilitate finding this problem.
>> +ns.gui
Error using load
