PROBLEM - Use categories path for product URLs

I’ve been creating categories for the different products I have.  Under the option “Use categories path for product URLs” I selected “no”.  I selected no for SEO purposes.  I want the product URL to be the same throughout the entire site.

Here’s what I’m having a problem with…

Let’s say I have a product that can be viewed at…

If I add that product to a category, such as then when you click on the product inside that category page you are taken to instead of the URL above.  I don’t want the “-1” added to the product URL.  I want the URL to be the same not matter what category it is.

Why is this happening.  Am I missing something?
