Wow, this is quite odd indeed! Jack, you say this is a new LMS, and maybe its new for you to be using, or it's new in the market place - although this kind of strangeness has it standing on pretty shaky legs. Whatever the case, this functionality will probably break any course that gets put into it.
Although not Adapt-specific, if you have used any other eLearning authoring tools, you could also create a quick demo using one of them and put that into the LMS for quick launching, exiting, re-launching tests, and give your LMS folks more evidence. Good luck!
