Slot on Sheet Metal Bend Flat Surface (Convert to sheet metal question)

I have the attached solid, and I want to convert it to sheetmetal. When I try to use Convert to Sheet Metal, I'm having a bit of difficulty.

 

(I'm 0.125" sheet metal, 1mm bend radius, for reference)

 

The tool obviously recognizes that a relief is needed at the slot, but I can't seem to select the whole edge as the bend edge, so it only puts a relief on one side.

 

After converting, I can't flatten the part.

 

What's the appropriate way to draw this kind of slot in the part, generating the reliefs needed?
