Creating a record in Model-Driven app creates two records instead of one



I've been working on a model-driven app for the last week or so and today something strange started happening.

Every time I make a record (in my case a custom "lead" table record) another record appears in the "opportunity" table after a few seconds. This record shares the name of the lead but nothing else. There are two BPF's, one for each table, and a flow can be run at the end of the lead-table BPF to convert a lead into a opportunity.


It was not happening earlier today and suddenly started after I had some trouble with displaying views I wanted to edit in the model driven editor.


At first I thought the flow was the culprit and was running unrequested, but in there is nothing in its flow-history that wasn't manually triggered. 



The record in the table I intended it to be in.



And here it is appearing in the other table, while I only used the built-in "add record" function of the model driven app.


I have also noticed that importing data from an excel template has the same problem, every lead imported gets a ghost-opportunity with no data except for a name.


I suspect it might be account-related as my coworker can add leads without any ghost-records appearing in the opportunities.


Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated
