Thanks for the detailed analysis!

I dug through the old commits and found where this behaviour has been

Commit 0bbf3a9bd message details the current behaviour and its caveats:

As you can see, the todayp condition is avoiding issues with weekly
agenda when the same habit is displayed multiple times.

The problem you observed is also noted and left unresolved.

Ideas how to deal with the described are welcome!
