This should not happen. When you pull the sti lever, the cable should simply move right through the cross top lever. If you pull the cross top lever and hold it, when you pull the sti lever it should force the cross top lever to return to normal position.

I'd check the installation of the cross top levers. If you post one more picture showing the cable run from the sti lever to the cross top, maybe we'd see something that's not quite right.

Also, I think you need to shorten those cable housings quite a bit so they are just a smooth arc from the cross top lever to the next housing stop.
