What's wrong with the rollover function for the "Everything Else" budget category?

The rollover function for my "Everything Else" budget keeps resetting no matter how many times I check it. I check it today, it's fine tomorrow, but then the third day it's gone and I've lost that rollover amount. I logged in to make sure it was checked the last day of last month, but once again, it's unchecked now and that money is lost. This has happened so many times, and only with this budget category.

To make up for it, each month now I've had to go in and create a fake transaction as if I'm paying myself for that leftover amount, but that's not a great solution because 1) it's annoying, 2) it shouldn't require a workaround, and 3) it throws off how much cash the system thinks I have.

Am I missing something or is this just a glitch in the system?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
