Category selection interface fails inside repeater


I am seeing the following issue with the Category selection interface inside a Collection.

I've replicated this in Safari 12.0.1 and FF 63.0.3

The process is as follows:

  1. Add new repeater item
  2. Choose a category from picker
  3. Add another repeater
  4. Category field is empty and does not load the Category selection interface

If I save the collection item and then add a new repeater it works again but the error follows the same pattern: First category field added fires up the Category selection UI and then silently fails if another one is added.

It also fails if I remove the group tags and change around the order of the fields in the template.

Edit template section is as follows:

<perch:group label="Certifications">
<perch:repeater id="product_certifications" label="Product certifications">
<perch:categories id="certification_category" label="Choose a Certification category" set="certifications" required>
<perch:content type="file" id="product_certification_link" bucket="downloads" label="Certification document">
