Bends disappear after extruding across a bend line?

So I'm trying to edit a sheet metal part where we need to add some material by making an extruded tab.  The problem is, the tab crosses the bend line created in unfolding the part.  Once the tab is merged, the bend line disappears.  I can't add a new sketched bend, as SW tells me there's a pre-existing bend.  Trying to fold the part won't work either, as the bend is fused.  Ideas?

One extrude within the bend line, one across (which causes the bend line to disappear):

Fold works for the flange with the tab added within the bend line.
