Sounds to me like things are workign correctly and you haven't built
the map correctly.
A - Exp.
B - Exam
1 - condition
If you have
Start -> A -> B -> End
And A is
Start -> ThingA -1-> ThingB -> End
Then what you really have is
Start -> ThingA -1-> ThingB -> B -> End
And thus you can't see B, because there is no valid path to B that
doesn't involve the condition being true.
What you really want in your map is:
Start ---> A -----> End
-> B -
(You don't really want a linear map anymore...)
Or you want A it be:
Start ---> ThingA -1-> ThingB -> ---> End
