Hi, when you connected the bench supply, did you connect the gnd /neg of the arduino circuit to the gnd/neg of the bench supply.Tom....
As I said I have no electrical background and I was always under the impression that "ground = ground" (so it doesnt matter which one you take). Obviously that is not the case - just why?
However could you elaborate a bit as to why this is is?

but why doesnt the current use the path that is there to go to the "other" ground provided by the bench supply
dissonance when you see a power system
