Post ABS again

OK, probably more than enough about ABS problems, but had the tell my story:
My 2007 K1200 GT was quite happy until the fall of 2014, when the dreaded ABS warning light came on.
Well my dealer confirmed that there was a pump failure, and agreed that Module Masters was the place to go, verses paying the horrendous cost for a new BMW part; he had used them half a dozen times already, and was happy with the result.
As winters are cold here in Ontario, I left my bike, and the work was done during the off season.
All was well when I picked it up in April.
However......
while waiting for the first exercise at the advanced riders course (with Lee Parks there in person), I found that the rear brake had seized!
This was the end of the course effectively, and my bike was trailered to the BMW dealer.
Long story short, it was the ABS pump again, but actually the electronic control unit, which applies the rear brake when the front is applied.
My mechanic was fantastic, and except for the bike being out of service for a month, everything was repaired at the cost of only one hour of labour.
He says that he has never seen this before.
Has anyone else had this problem.
