Pabbly -> Airtable: sometimes plain text, sometimes HTML being passed from earlier Pabbly steps

Your Task History ID
Hi there, I have a usually reliable automation flow that has changed behaviours recently.

A file is uploaded to a Googledrive location - the new file ID is later written into an Airtable field. Sometimes it arrives in Airtable correctly (with the FileID) and sometimes with a bunch of Pabbly HTML around the FileID, seemingly at random one way or the other.

See screenshot for what should (and always used to) arrive and at the bottom, the HTML wrapped one.

An example is:
This is what was written to Airtable as a string:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/<span class="dynamic_value" contenteditable="false" data-attr="4183495<=-+*/@/*+-=>response > result > uploadedFileId">4. Response Result UploadedFileId : {{{_map_val_{{{1qNHiAJyj3XXXXXTtIhROw9NISHHdPChb}}}_map_val_}}}<!--endofdynamic_value--></span data_sign="endofdynamic_value">

as opposed to https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qNHiAJyj3XXXXXTtIhROw9NISHHdPChb

(Some path elements changed to XXXXX for privacy)

The Pabbly routine is also screencapped to show the response...

And the step miss-sent to Airtable by Pabbly that ended up in Airtable wrapped in HTML formatting...

Would adding a short delay help? I'm mystified because these routines are usually so predictable and reliable until the last 10 days.
