nonCanon flash and Live View (T2i)

Yesterday I noticed that my sunpak 383 manual flash (setup off-camera and using yongnuo 603 triggers) would NOT fire in Live View mode but worked fine when not in Live View. I never noticed this behavior before but maybe I never used the flash with Live View before.

Then this morning I read this in my T2i manual:

This seems really odd to me. Can anyone help me understand why flash and liveview would have this odd behavior? And importantly, is there a workaround which allows me to use Live View with my old flash?
