Bend Deduction Problem

I am having an issue with unfolding my sheet metal parts. In the past I have been able to type in my own bend deduction and inside radius, and when I unsuppress the flat pattern it unfolded fine. Now I get warning that this part contains features that cannot be unbent. The inside radius we are using is smaller than the material thickness(.120 thk, .062R). When I type in my bend deduction, and an inside radius equal to the thickness, it works fine. It also works if the inside radius is greater than 62% of the thickness. Any Ideas?
