Relinking multiple instances of the same file Broken?

Hey smart people. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

 

When I try to relink multiple instances of the same (missing) file to my illustrator document, it used to be that I could select in the links palette all the links to the same file and then illustrator would bring up the link dialog box for every instance that I had selected. Although it wasn't automated, I only had to double click on the name of the file to link to, and it would cycle to the next one.

 

Today I noticed that when I select mulitple links it only relinks one of them and I have to select each link separately. Am I missing something? Have they changed the way it works? 

 

Please advise, thanks. 

Holy Moly. It worked as expected this time. Is there a limit to the number of files or something maybe?
