Subform changed after latest libreoffice update

I have a subform that has been working perfectly for the last 6 months. I use LibreOffice Base with multiple .dbf spreadsheets so that I can change the data from within my forms. I have a particular form that has six subform in it. I am having trouble in all of the subforms. Some of the fields are not used with every customer. An example is the Middle Name field. Before the update I could add or change other info in the subform, while leaving fields blank that did not pertain to this individual customer. After the latest update LibreOffice base will not save the record until I put some form of data in the field. I typically hit the “period” key and then it allows me to save. Is this a bug in the update, or did it change something in my subform.? Any help is appreciated.
