Strange "Hide object when..." results!

Working on a database for FM GO and have suddenly hit a curious glitch. I have been using the Hide option to great advantage, popping up specific edit fields depending on a choice in a value list. Good space saving for the iOS stuff. Now this morning I set a field to hide when, set up my Boolean and the field disappeared, as expected. But when I made the selection that should have revealed the field, it failed. Worse yet, it si,ply never came back to view.

To make this harder to figure out, it only failed on one specific value choice. If my list was A,B,C,D,E,, and F, I set it to hide if choice was NOT B. So then hidden, if I chose B, no appearance. But other fields set to use other values work perfectly.

I dragged off a copy of a field that was working fine (hiding/showing) and rewired it to B. It failed. I created a fresh value list, same results. One specific value seems ro make the selected field stop showing at all, never to return no matter the value selected!

 

Anyone else had this happen?
