Well, with multiple paragraph fields in the same tab it would be easier
to assign each field to a particular subject, with the ability to see all of
then at once.
Two years ago, when we discovered this unexpected behavior, we
feared the risk of data loss from one of the two fields and deleted the
second field.  At this moment, we have decided to keep both fields (with
its imported data) and see what happen.  For now, Tellico is saved and
opened correctly.
Really, this is not a very important feature for us.  But it would be
a nice standard.  If this require a large code transformation, we
understand that it stays as it is.
