So if I understand correctly all of your presets, with the exception of Preset 4, work as they should. That being the case, it would seem this is due to Preset 4 sending an incorrect program change number, which should be a relatively simple fix.

If you haven't done so already, I respectfully suggest you refer to the
EDIT PRESET section of your GCPro Owner's Manual beginning on Page 16, specifically the ASSIGNING MIDI PROGRAM CHANGES section on Page 17. I suspect, if you follow the steps outlined there, you'll find the bogus parameter and once corrected you'll be back up and running in short order.

Hope this helps...

Yea, it sounds to me that Bank 0 Preset 4 has simply been programmed to do exactly what you are seeing. Go into the Preset Edit Mode and re-program this preset to tell each MIDI Device to go to the number you want.

1. Recall the Ground Control Pro preset you want to re-program.
2. Press and hold the EDIT button until the screen changes.
3. Your first named MIDI device should be shown with a number to the right side of the screen. This number is the Program Change that is programmed for this MIDI Device on this preset. Type in the Program Change number you want to be sent.
4. Press Select Down to get to the next named MIDI Device and set it's Program Change. Repeat for each MIDI Device you have named.
5. You can name your preset or you can just press the EDIT button again to save the changes and exit.

I hope that helps!
