Weird ATC routing on my airport - how to diagnose and fix?

I have released CYOO airport, however there is a strange ATC behavior there. I turned on taxy instructions to see the ribbon, and the ribbon goes through very illogical routing that goes to the runway and runs along it until it runs out into the grass, which doesn't make any sense. There is a perfectly fine taxiway that leads there, and I double-checked that taxiway paths are consistent and connected, and marked with appropriate letters. See screenshots. What can cause this and why? How do I correct it in an update?


The ATC instructions read almost correct in the window: Hold short runway 30 via taxiway D A B cross runway 05 - but why is there "runway 05 D", this is nonsense. It's runway 05. But the actual ribbon is nothing like the instructions! I marked the correct path with orange dotted lines, and where the actual ribbon was going - with red dotted lines. You can see that it goes to runway 30 isntead of taxiway B and keeps going on it, just running of into the grass.

The ribbon contradicts what ATC is actually saying, it's illegal and confusing. Runway start is in the usual place, next to the numbers, though taxiway B connects a bit further, but that should not be a problem, and ribbon does roung way past the start point anyway.

What should I do and how can I diagnose the problem?

Thank you! It was screwing up the lines, but I didn't think of that. I'll add it.
