Actually, that is helpful to know. My callback for
wp_register_widget_control does an update_option when the widget is
submitted, so that explains it. I can check whether the argument to the
validation callback is an array or an object and work around the problem
But now I'm wondering why the widget is submitted immediately after
adding it. That seems... unnecessary?
