‘Multiple items found’ error when selecting from ‘My Recent Items’ drop down on standard lookup field

Maybe a Summer ’18 Version problem?

I have a dependent lookup field where you must select the value via the lookup window. After you have done this there is a standard lookup field that filters on the previous field. It appears to work normally, but upon saving you get this error ‘Multiple items found. Select from drop-down or click icon to refine search.’

In the drop down it appears to let you select any value — the lookup filter is not being applied.

To resolve this, you need to select the value from the lookup window.

Being able to select a value that is outside of the required lookup filter is a big problem!

I have seen the known issue about actionSupport [https://success.salesforce.com/issues_view?id=a1p30000000sY09AAE], but I am not using this feature.

Lookup Fields:

     <!-- dependent lookup field -->
<apex:inputField value="{!line.Warehouse__c}" required="true"/>
     <!-- standard lookup field that is filtered based on above field -->
<apex:inputField value="{!line.Product__c}" required="true"/>

Screenshot of error message:

Error Message

Screenshot showing all the items and their IDs NOT BEING FILTERED in the drop down that appears:

Items in drop down not filtered by lookup filter

Screenshot showing that in the lookup window the filter works and only one item should be available (the other product is not an exact match):

Items in lookup window filtered by lookup filter

Any advice is appreciated!!
