tax-exempt interest seems to be copied incorrectly from federal to California return

On our taxes this year, we entered three 1099-DIV forms with some California tax-exempt interest on them. (For the remaining interest, we entered "Multiple States" as explained in the help.) Later, when working on the California state taxes, it says "Tax exempt interest of $XXXX transferred from your federal return."

 

However, the number seems incorrect. I think it's supposed to be the sum of all the amounts entered for California in the 1099-DIV's. After checking several times, I'm convinced that either it's a bug in TurboTax, or I fundamentally don't understand what's going on and the formula is something other than a simple sum.

 

Can anyone explain what's going on here? If not, how do I file a bug?
