I can recall many similar instances of an obscure setting (obscure to me anyway) causing wasted hours during commissioning or testing. Not limited to GE either, although they had their share.
I once had to add an additional discrete input module to a VersaMax I/O drop. Should have been simple, just increase the size of the %I entry to the EGD setup. Nope, I had to enter a new line after the analog inputs because the new module was to the right of the analog module in the lineup.
Tried to use the Modbus block included in the S7-1200 instruction set using addressed tags. Nope, had to use symbolics.
