It is a big file. Hope I"m allowed to attach it here...

Yeah it is sort of an attempt to "tame" the specularity. It's a little bit different from turning spec off completely. I had it set to zero to just show the effect, but it does need to be set close to it. Anyway this is not really a "fix", just me trying to cheat and attempt some workarounds until the issue really gets addressed. I did find in the end that this cheat only works for certain lighting situations....oh well.

Oh this is just a temporary workaround (at least for me in some situations) to address the bleeding back light. Right now some lighting scenarios in Eevee with backlight and SSS shader will leak in backlight and fail to cast shadows. It seems to be a complicated kind of bug and may take a bit longer to fix.

I tried a few things as a makeshift workaround and found that plugging the layerweight node in the specular of the principled shader provides a bit of a "relief" even if not too perfect. It sort of temporarily "covers" up the blown out bleed through, at least until the bug gets sorted out eventually. Have not tried this on more complex geometry / scenes and I don't know if this will drastically affect specular highlights in general,, but I suppose Eevee is not really for super-realistic renders so may be able to get away with this for now.

Won't flipping normals lead to complications down the pipeline? (Particle emission hair, textures, etc....)

Yes hopefully this issue can be solved before the actual release.

I think it is more than the specular behaving oddly, when I disable the the specular for the light we still see a bit of the bleeding, although not as obvious (and of course without specular enabled it won't look as nice). I wonder if there is a temporary workaround, since this bug (?) may take a bit of time to address.

Update on some more tests made for today (Nov 28) with a new blender test file with one light (only the backlight this time) just to isolate the effect.
So far the same problem. Somehow since Oct, backlighting in eevee seems to behave differently.

Also a follow up. The version today gives another variant result. I know that the energy for the lights is very high (i.e. 30) but it should not explain the variance). The energy of the light in this new version creates a blown out image compared to the same setting in yesterday's version. Again in both versions...compared to the October 26 version...the backlighting does not cast shadows (or is it a light setting that I did not know about).
Just want to follow up if there is any progress on this. Whether this is indeed a bug or if it's a setting that I was not aware of.

This is the test file I used:
