 Replying to [comment:45 slewisma]:
 > I've got three client sites mid-development that cannot continue right
 now because the "improved" text widget breaks the ability to edit a text
 widget at all if it is in a Toolset Layout as a single widget and regular
 use of the text widget in a widget area "eats" existing content when
 opening the widget for editing. Yes I can go find the widget contents in
 MySQL to try to salvage it and re-introduce it another way but that is not

 Does the code breaks in Text Editor when you create a new post? Maybe that
 because how
 wp_editor works, so that is the fault of the TinyMCE editor.
 We could release the old Text widget as a plugin for everyone so your
 clients could continue work.
