I don’t know of any specific changes that would cause this and I probably wouldn’t be able to figure out what the cause is.
The positioning of the popup could have been altered.
As far as the relationship field goes, it is probably based in the field ID. With multiples of the same form you would have duplicate id values for fields. I’d be more confused about why it was working before than why it is no longer working.
