Relax. Nothing's broken. When using multiple masks, you just need a little schoolin' in Mask Modes... and here it is:

Select the layer and hit hit MM (M twice quickly) on your keyboard and that will open the mask properties. Next to each mask there is a drop-down list that says "Add" by default, on the second mask try changing that to something else (either subtract, intersect, or difference) depending on what you're trying to accomplish.
