Relationship between different types of alarms (arm security alarm while water leak alarm is active?)

For YEARS my iris security alarm has armed successfully without fail using the "when house is empty" rule.
Today it occurred to me that, while I have water leak sensors, I can't remember ever testing them. On my lunch break I stuck a leak sensor lead in a cup of water and I immediately got an automated call from iris explaining the alarm.
I hit the # sign as instructed to confirm receipt of the notification, and went on with my day. I locked up as I left but did not manually set the alarm.
About an hour later, while at work, I opened the iris app which still showed the water leak alarm was active... I was under the impression that hitting the # on the phone dismissed it but I guess not... I hit the cancel button and returned to the dashboard.
Now, the strange part.... my security alarm was NOT enabled. I looked at my history and it showed the "away" scene was run shortly after I left. The away scene includes an action which arms the security alarm, and this has never failed to run in the past. 
I have a feeling that this had something to do with having an active water leak alarm. Is iris unable to arm a security alarm while another type of alarm is active? If that is the case, it's not a huge issue but explains why my alarm did not arm.
Otherwise, I'm not sure what happened.
