Is there a bug with entering multiple chords per bar?

In Notion 5 (on a Windows 7 PC) I am having trouble entering more than one chord per bar sometimes.  Often I enter a chord name as text using the C7 palette tool on the first beat but I can't enter another one on a later beat in the bar (even though there is a note started on that beat).   My method for adding a second chord to a later beat is  to just click on the area above the bar with the C7 tool (in line with the existing chord symbol).  

However sometimes it works and I can't find a pattern to determine what I do differently to get it to work..   When it works the edit box is often placed much higher than the existing chord symbols and I have to drag the chord down after entering the text to line it up.

Is this a known issue?  Is there a fix or workaround for this?

Also I submitted this question a few days ago and it appears to have been lost so I am entering it again.
