Jeff:

I don't think this is a bug.  It's a consequence of the way your netlist is
connected.

I think what is happening is that the net you are trying to route is really
connected to the pin of the bottom side chip.  To route to the top chip
instead, you will need to change the order of the net using the From-To
editor.  This way you can route to the chip you want to route to first.

Back in the v2.8 days, this was not a problem because the route would
automagically go to the nearest node (pin) on that net.  But it was a
nuisance if you really wanted to go to a pin beyond that nearest pin first.
So I guess they did away with that feature in later versions.
