Hmm, yes, this sounds like it's probably my bug -- I think your stack 
might be getting saved in 7.0 stack format, which doesn't know how to 
store widgets.

Could you please file a bug report with the steps to reproduce (and the 
affected stack, if possible?)

As a workaround, you could try using:

     save the mousestack with newest format

in the message box (with your mouse over the stack in question) to force 
it to be saved in 8.0 stack format.
