Place>Agent relationship: Display template shows data from *other* interstitial record

When I assign a relationship between a place and an agent (=CA "entity" Person), I see information that is assigned to the same agent, but with an unrelated Object.
Setup is as follows:

1) Object:
Object1 has 2 relationships with Person1 with data inside each relationship (Interstitial record (Paperclip)):

  • Person1 is an "actor" who plays the character "Hansen"
  • Person1 is also an "actor" who plays another character "Farfar"

There is no collision, display template works as expected.

2) Place:
Completely unrelated to Object1, but assigned a new relationship to Person1 (birthplace).
Now, the display template shows the data from the first interstitial record... :astonished:

When I modify the data inside the Object1-Person1 relationship record, it also changes in the Place display.

Here is my display template:

    <b>Name:</b>
    <ifdef code='ca_entities.preferred_labels.displayname'>
        <l>^ca_entities.preferred_labels.displayname</l>
    </ifdef> <br/>
    <ifdef code="ca_objects_x_entities.cws_HasAgent.cws_Activity">
        <b>Activity:</b>
        <unit delimiter="," aggregateUnique=1 sort="^ca_objects_x_entities.cws_HasAgent.cws_Activity"> ^ca_objects_x_entities.cws_HasAgent.cws_Activity </unit>
        <ifdef code="ca_objects_x_entities.cws_HasAgent.cws_Character"> <br/>
        <b>Character(s):</b>
        <unit delimiter="," aggregateUnique=1> ^ca_objects_x_entities.cws_HasAgent.cws_Character </unit>
        </ifdef>
    </ifdef> <br/>

If anyone could help me finding out what's happening here, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you very much in advance.
