We discuss twisted states of AdS orbifolds which couple to N = 2 chiral primary operators not invariant under exchange of the gauge factors. Kaluza-Klein reduction on the fixed circle gives the correct conformal dimensions of operators in the superconformal theory and involves some aspects of monopole dynamics in the non-trivial background. As a byproduct we found evidence for decoupling of U(1) factors in the four-dimensional gauge theory.
