First of all we have to reproduce this and then we can investigate the
root cause. Maybe due the fact that you had incorrect config items in
between the workflow got broken in some way. I don't know you can try to
reproduce it with a valid old and valid new extension. But restart the
office after uninstalling the old and before the installation of the new.
