Liftmaster LA412 Gate Opener Torque When Opening

Last week someone passing by mechanically locked my gate.  When I tried to open the gate with the controller in the car, the motor could not move the gate and pull the mounting hinge from the motor mount.
The reverse torque was set about half way, but wouldn't the excess current being drawn by the motor cause an error and stop the motor?  The Liftmaster people I have talked with think that the reverse torque only works when the gate is in motion, but if true this would be a design error.  Any thoughts?
