I don't own a 3-valve BBb compensator, but I do own a 3-valve CC comp, so I checked the slur between G and G-flat the same way. Yeah, it IS a little rough, so it seems to be idiosyncratic to the Besson 3-banger, but with a little concentration you can get it under control--don't let the 2nd valve do the work for you--make sure you hear and buzz that E clearly.
If all else fails, try fingering the F as 13 and the E as 123--this seems to be somewhat smoother.
