ProjectWise Workspace Global variable not appending

In PW Admin I have created a Global managed workspace that appends to MS_VBASEARCHDIRECTORIES

When I look through the generated workspace .cfg logfile in the section LEVEL 0 (system) it shows my appended path:

%level 0




but then if you scroll further down to LEVEL 1 (appl) it reverts back;

%level 1


For the life of me I can't figure out why it reverts back to the four original paths before appending (PWDIR)bin/$(_PWGEO_MDLAPPS_SUBDIR)/ from C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\config\appl\pwgeo.cfg 


I have tried running -debug but this doesn't give me anymore information.

Other variables such as MS_DGNLIBLIST appends without any problem. Is just this one that is giving me grief.

Has anyone come across the same problem?
