Well, what's really confusing me is that I thought about it
being hooked up backwards too, so I swapped the wires around.
It's behaving as if both wires are line wires. When both
wires are hooked up, (either way) I'm unable to set the switch.
But if I hook up either set of wires to the line terminals, the
GFCI appears to work normally.
