Unhappy Upbeat Measure acting funny


I'm putting a piece together that is in 5/4 time. It's only 8 measures (plus an upbeat measure) long, but I can't get the upbeat measure (which is only an eighth note) to work properly.

I followed the instructions in the documentation, and split the first measure and got rid of the new, "extra," first measure, but when I try to get the upbeat measure working, it gives me a full 5/4 measure, and moves the note to the start of the measure.

Here are pics:

What I'm starting with:

What I put in the dialog:

What I end up with:

Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong or how this can be fixed?
