Your hypothesis space does not cover the whole of reals^5, but only the opposite sectors with all positive and all negative values. Your current situation with some positive and some negative estimates falls into neither the null nor the alternative you specified. You might want to check Silvapulle & Sen's book on constrained inference. They cover this stuff in all the details. What you describe below is not making much sense, although it resembles the ultimate result of a test with an inequality-constrained parameter.
