What I was kinda getting at was whether the cage would go all the way to the limit screw if you pushed it. In other words, was it getting hung up by something else? If it won't hit the screw when unattached, I'd say there's something wrong with it.
As an aside, I'm having a similar problem right now. I tweaked my barrel adjuster to relieve some rattle and the thing wouldn't shift down to the granny (triple) with a slack cable. So I dropped the lower limit 1/2 turn. Later in the ride the thing started overshifting and I had to raise the LL 1.5 turns to get it back to normal ! WTF?? I haven't had to time to spend trying to figure this out, but know that you're not alone. I'm starting to believe that all FDs are cursed.
