Please file a bug report and attach a sample project.

Btw. the "unique value" renderer in old symbology is equivalent to
"categorized" renderer in new symbology. It is not clear to me what is
actually wrong with that. Maybe just a terminology problem? (it has
been suggested once or twice to do some renaming of new symbology
renderers, but I am not sure if any consensus was found).
