Yes. I believe this to indeed be the issue.

I have tried fixing another instance of this issue in our code by splitting the one action into many and it appears to address the problem. From what I can tell this is the source of 3 out 4 of the dependency issues we are seeing. The 4th may be the same since it also involves an action with multiple targets but it is difficult to confirm.

Thanks! I had worked around this issue a few months ago in another area but it is becoming difficult to patch every instance that is popping up.
