Loss calculation errors after updating inventory data

I'm working with Canadian Hazus 2.1 Flood, doing some test runs on a single municipality in the BC Lower Mainland.

I'm trying to use CDMS "Update Study Region with Hazus-MH Data", but it seems to be corrupting my economic loss calculations.

Details:

I built a Study Region for the municipality using out-of-the-box Hazus, set up a riverine flood scenario with a user-defined depth grid, and ran the analysis.  Building-related losses were in the order of $5 billion dollars.
