Flat pattern not working properly with configurations

Hello,

 

Occasionally, when I am flattening a sheet metal part with a series of configurations, I run into a problem with the model. The flat pattern extent lines are visible, but the model itself will not unbend to show the bend lines. I haven't quite found a solution besides modeling the part over again - which can be rather tedious at times. I have only noticed this happening with a part that has multiple configurations. I've attached an image below as an example:

However, some of my other configurations are okay when using flat pattern:

Thanks!
