Part of the problem, I think, is that along with the shipboard interior changes came a complete re-rigging of the assignment distribution infrastructure, something that was increasingly necessary to avoid some truly chewing gum and bailing wire arrangements to make things appear as would appear reasonable to a human being.
Colonial, Diplomacy and Marauding assignments all wound up being less common than they were intended. A fix is in the pipeline for these, though additional tuning may be necessary as well.
Because of the massive re-rigging, there may be other issues that still need to be resolved that haven't come to our attention as yet.
