With thanks to Yanna Nedelcheva for making me aware of this, it appears that a large number of bugs have been introduced to the portfolio system in the Q2 2017 release.  This is very concerning as it's not been the smoothest tool to used over the last few years, but had been starting to stabilise, but a number of these new bugs sound quite fundamental:

We use the portfolio system with our teaching courses, and I'm now very concerned that if we use it this year, we're going to be hitting some major issues.  Yanna mentioned that some fixes would be included in CU3 for Q2 2017, but it would be good to know if there's any underlying problem or reason so many bugs have been introduced in this release, and if there's a plan to fix these quickly.
