Inability to Make More than One Join to Same Table

In 2.14.2 it appears you no longer have the ability to make more than one join (eg using different matching criteria) to the same Vector, csv etc) table.
- when trying to add another join, any existing joined tables no longer appear in the drop-down list.
A workaround is possible, by duplicating the table to which you want to join and making a new join on that...But this seems rather superfluous
(In 2.8 it was however possible to make multiple joins to the same table and it would be good if this feature were restored please)

Denis may be able to elaborate?
I would say that as it was by design, and to solve a crash, then duplicating the table to join seems a reasonable (yet not very elegant nor very handy) workaround. I would rather open a feature request asking to reinstate this functionality, or even asking the developer in the above github commit as it has not answered here.
