Comment (by azaozz):

 The first 'save-widget' is run to actually create the widget instance in
 PHP (i.e. let the back-end know there's a new instance of that widget and
 run any PHP hooks on it). Then all of the new widget instance's HTML is
 loaded into the new widget "wrap" on the front as return from that XHR
 request. This includes any changes made by the PHP hooks.

 Don't think there's a way around this, seems we can fire a custom event
 after the initial XHR to trigger changes that need to be made by JS on
 adding new widget instance.
