Republishing model breaks web reports

I initially created a model in Power BI Desktop, published the model, and then created a report from the model in Power BI web.  I then decided that I wanted to add an additional column to the model, so I added the column in Power BI Desktop and re-published to the existing model in the web.  The model updated successfully, but the report I had created against the model reverted to an empty report (just a blank page with no visualizations).  Just to make sure that the model change didn't break the report somehow, I re-created the report in Power BI web and then re-published the model again from Power BI Desktop, this time with no changes at all, and the same thing happened.  Any idea why this might be happening?

I made a few new reports in Power BI web and attempted this again.  It looks like only the first report is getting cleared and the rest of them are left as-is.  In Power BI desktop, when I'm working with the schema, I have an empty report visible that I never actually saved, but is it essentially treating the first report in the web as if it's the empty report from Power BI desktop and overwriting it to match?

 

EDIT: I tried modifying the default empty report in Power BI desktop and re-publishing, and I confirmed that the report that kept getting cleared on the web is in fact linked to the default desktop report.
