MultiTerm: persisting problem with ghost entries despite following the recommendations

Hello everybody! Is anyone else still having problems with ghost entries while using filters in MultiTerm 2019 (as described in here)? Even though I have followed the recommendations for this particular error, which means no use of the Hard Filter Mode, the problem is still there. I'd rather keep using filters because they allow for swift batch entering of the terms to be completed later on. The alternative layout solution isn't really working for me.

I know this issue has been solved in the 2021 version, but for various reasons I am not planning to switch just yet.
