It is a philosophical thing. Look at it the other way round.
You can texture the whole object using a texture in the union and 
texture individual components with their own texture.

I would check the message window and see if there is a line that reads 
something like:

Rays:            1046865   Saved:             39883   Max Level: 5/5

The important bit is:
Max Level: 5/5
Which means that the Max_Trace_Level is set to 5 and the level has been 
reached. Try increasing it in the global_settings. For instance;
global_settings { max_intersections 25}
