can't change start date of recurring paycheck

I received an off-cycle bonus and used the next paycheck in the series to enter it, as I have in the past. I then went to change the start date of the rest of the series, but the change will not stick - Quicken will reset the date to the next date in the original series. You can actually see this happening in the "Manage Manual Bills and Income" dialog. When I change the date of the next paycheck, it saves the new due date for a second or two, then changes it to the old one. You can see the entry change positions in the list when it is sorted by date.

This is a new behavior that has been introduced within the last six months.

    Quicken intentionally changed the behavior of reminders about the same time they introduced Online Bills about two years ago.  It appears they are maintaining the current due date when a reminder's transaction is entered and silently no longer allow the reminder's due date to subsequently be set to the same or an earlier date.  The hidden date may manifest a variety of symptoms.  Most notably, reminders appear to skip months.  The generic work around is to delete the misbehaving reminder and create a new reminder.
