Ok Achim,
you destroyed my theory

I just found that my W10 Home is 1909 build 18363.592 so probably was 
updated as your around mid Jan


But Corporate versions have different time table and patch

the one I have is Version 1709 Build 16299.15
It seems Corporate IT is forgetting to update it at all.

May be Takashi one is also behind in update and currently free
from the new bug/behaviour.

What I found interesting is that

This release had caused problems to some AV, so may be is changing
the play in area that are causing problems also to us.
