Pre-Tax 401k Match incorrect when a Military Makeup 401k element present

The ER match portion of our 401k Pre-Tax element is higher than the 3.25% of the compensation that it should be when a military makeup element is also present.
When the military makeup element is not there, the match is correct for the pre-tax.

Rerun the quickpay and view the results. The Pre-tax 401k match is now over the limit by $38.89 on the pre-tax. It should still be $72.23, not $111.12.

Results of rerunning the quick pay after removing feeds from the Pension Compensation Limit Balance. This is the expected result.

The issue has the following business impact:

The Employer Match is calculating on the Military makeup element and it should not be
