Strange behavior on data entry form


I am encountering some strange behavior in 2.26 after updating some metadata on a couple of my aggregate forms. This seems to be related to the category combo override & or data set.

Pre change - everything works fine and looks like his:

Then I update the data elements and GL-S5/TMS gets renamed to GL-S513/TS and gets a slightly newer disaggregation (new catcombo).
However - as per default data set behavior the old CatCombo is retained on the data element in the data set (override says it has the old one same as GL-S5/PMS.).
(This behavior is great, btw! :) )

But : when I try to enter data on the form it suddenly is drawn up in the auto form as an entirely different cat combo - male female. Which it is not assigned either on data element or on data set.
Trying to enter data against it gives an error as that catcombo/catoption is not assigned. If I try to create a custom form I am given the list of CORRECT disaggregations.

Testing to see how this fits together; I try to change the override on the data set to match female and male (sex). However - Surprise! The form now changes to default:

However : Creating a new data set does not have this issue. But I would prefer not to have to do that in order to fix this..

Any suggestions on cause or fix?

Many thanks!
