MicroStation Connect personal.ucf variable issue

MicroStation Connect update 14

Has anyone noticed that if you modify the Personal.ucf file on the local hard drive and add a configuration variable to search for additional vba, that the vba search variables stated in the Organization, workspace and workset level configuration is completely removed and those vba resources are omitted? Does not matter if I append or prepend. I am not stating the variable with an "=". Curious if anyone else has seen this behavior and if it is occurring on purpose or is it a defect. Also if it does or does not occur, which version of MicroStation?
