I run LL DC to test sanity of the DC hardware, not the first-time test hardware.

Don't feel too bad. The US really was a mishmash of grid frequencies until after WW2. Parts of southern California were 50Hz until the late 1940's. Old timers told me stories of swapping 50Hz clocks...

GFI compare the current in the L and N conductors, and trip if there is an imbalance (current leakage) that exceeds the design specification. Not necessary for there to be current on Ground.
