Why does my radius dimension arrow head move when adding a jog to it?

I have a weird thing happening when adding a jog to a dimension line.  First, I created a radius dimension, then used CTRL + LMB drag to add a second leader.  I'm trying to jog the second leader line.  When I RMB on the second leader line and select Add Jog Point, the jog point is added to the original leader line.  What's worse is that the arrow head no longer lands on the geometry line.  It moves to be on the imaginary diameter of that fillet.  Even if I remove the jog point, I can't manipulate the arrow any more (IE: flip the direction of the arrow head).  This happens regardless if I have addition arrow heads.

 

Does anyone know a) how to add the jog to the second line instead of the first line and b) what is causing the arrow head to move and how to fix that?  I'd prefer not to have to create a note to accomplish this.
