I suspect this is a programming error on their part.

It is almost certainly NOT a programming error. This is an extremely common transaction that has been available and virtually unchanged for almost a decade.

There's just some problem with the way you've entered the data. My guess is that you entered the Roth conversion as a Roth contribution.

Phil asked some good questions to help figure out where the error is.
