We automatically read and interpret all events that libdivecomputer
decodes - so I'm not sure how what you are reporting would be possible.

Do you have access to that Galileo dive computer? Can you run the
universal tool from libdivecomputer to dump a libdivecomputer dive.xml
file? I'd be very surprised if that included a gas change event that
wasn't present in Subsurface after you imported the same dive directly
from Subsurface
