Corruption of check number field in previously posted transactions

For transactions entered through an iPhone app, I enter a check number of "iPhone"
Recently, I've noticed that some previously posted transactions (but not most) have the last few characters changed to bizarre accented foreign language characters. The change is consistent in that each change is the same and I can easily fix it with search and replace. This has happened a number of times. I'm running Quicken Deluxe 2020 for Windows. This was an upgrade from 2017.

    The corruption is from "iPhone" to "iPhoúÿÿÿ" and includes transactions reconciled as much as a year ago. The comment fields of these transactions are similar but not identical.

    The corruption occurs during the update process.

    If you haven't rebooted Windows since you installed the latest software update, please do so now and then try Quicken again.
