convert the item to a linked card : butler action creates random extra card Edited

We've been using butler automations for the last few months, and it was working great until the last few days when one of the actions is creating random extra cards. The rule we have is:

"when an item starting with "[" is added to checklist "Tasks", convert the item to a linked card at the top of list "Tasks" copying labels and members, set due the next friday"

In the screenshot below, card "Main card" has a check list called "Tasks". When you create an item with "[" at the front of a checklist item, it used to create a card that was directly linked in the item. However, it now creates two cards, one with the original title of the item, and the other with the url of the other card in it's name, both linked to the original card.

Not sure if others have experienced this, but looking to see if there is a work around as this rule was an essential part of our workflow.

Also, this is the only automation rule that is currently setup for this board, so there should not be any conflicts with other rules.

Solved this. Turns out you need to watch automation rules that other users have setup on the same board. They may not all show up under your account, but they are shared automatically with the entire board.
