New problem with Supports

I have no idea what changed in the latest version of PrusaSlicer 2.5.2, but now the Supports is printing oddly.  Here's the model I'm working with:  Model

Several days ago, I sliced the model and it looked like this:

As you can see, the support material is ONLY in the cutouts (the apple and the leaf above it), and that is exactly how it printed.

Tonight when I went to reslice the model after modifying some dimensions, here's what the slice looks like:

As you can see, the support material is no longer constrained to the open apple and leaf areas, but rather now extends down the wall of the container (both in front and in back of the wall).  I have spent well over an hour and a half trying to find ways to eliminate this "overflow" support material from being generated, to no avail.  Can someone help me out and tell me what may have changed with the latest update to PrusaSlicer 2.5.2 that would cause this?

Many thanks in advance!

RE: New problem with Supports

It may be your changed dimensions causing it.  I'm guessing you are using snug support type (guessing as you have not included a zipped up PS project file for us to diagnose your problem).  There are various settings like spacing, closing radius etc.  Your changes sound like they have caused it to re-evaluate with the existing parameters.

You could always run the last version with your updated model and check it in both to see if its the software or your model.
