Should a swept flange merge with an existing sheet metal part?

I am trying to add a swept flange to an existing sheet metal part. I can successfully add the swept flange, but it creates a separate body. Shoudn't the new flange be able to merge with the existing body?

 

If I add a combine feature to merge the two bodies, then no flat pattern can be generated.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions on better ways to do this? Any help much appreciated!
