A second set of leaves have grown high on the stem. Is this unusual? And what does it indicate?

You have a Keiki (baby Plant) you should leave it attached to the flowering stem till it grows some new roots.
Not strange, some orchids readily make keikis.

Here is a link that might be useful: FAQ on Keiki
