Processes profiles

Does anyone know for sure if in the processes probe, when you select generate alarm when down AND select expected instances to equal X, does it do alarms for both if configured in the SAME profile?  I ask because I have a process that I want an alarm generated when it doesn't equal the expected number at a low level, but I want a high level alarm when the process count is down all together aka 0 processes running.  When I test it and shut off all processes that are monitored for a given profile, it generates an alarm saying there are 0 processes running, but the critical alarm for the process being down, isn't generated.  Am I going to have to create seperate profiles or does this appear to be a defect?
