"A vortex crosses the pressure opening" warning, but the Inlet/Outlet ratio is not correct.

I'm trying to determine the flow rate of water through some complicated geometry and I'm getting the above warning. I've seen this before and managed to fix the issue. However in this case, the error does not seem applicable. I've set goals for inlet and outlet flow with only outlet used for convergence. These goals use the same surfaces which my pressure boundary conditions use. As I'm typing this:

 

Current Values

Inlet Flow = 10.8982

Outlet Flow = ( - ) 10.8995

Inlet / Outlet = .9999

 

Average Values

Inlet Flow = 10.9128

Outlet Flow = ( - ) 10.914

Inlet / Outlet = .9999

 

Yet the warning message states that the Inlet / Outlet = 0.235463. Not even close... What gives? Should this lower my confidence in the results?
