FCB1010 expression pedal function cancels out after using footswitch

I just got an FCB1010 and have it all hooked up and working pretty well in Ableton.

I've created an effects chain in a new effects rack and am using footswitches 1 thru 3 to turn on/off effects (Coyote Wah, Delay, Reverb).

I've mapped the expression pedal to control the 'frequencies' setting on the Coyote Wah plugin and it works brilliantly - UNTIL I use any of the footswitches to turn off any of the other effects. Once I do that, the expression pedal has no effect - it stops working. I can turn the effects on and off again with the footswitches, it's just that the expression pedal stops functioning.

I thought maybe it was because Coyote Wah was a 3rd party plugin so, I tried using a similar setup with Ableton's 'autofilter' effect - mapping the on/off to footswitch 1 and mapping the frequency setting to the expression pedal. But, same thing happens. I can control the frequencies with the expression pedal until I use any of the footswitches - then it stops working.

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get this working? I'd like to be able to control parameters WITHIN the effects chain using the expression pedal and be able to turn effects on and off with footswitches...

Thanks in advance for any help with this!
