I'm testing an upgrade to 2.3, and I noticed that widgets were having
problems, but only on pages on which I hadn't made any changes to the
widgets since upgrading. If I saved a page as-is, the widgets would
start rendering problem-free.

So I saved a page (having made no changes), and looked at the DB
before and after:

(4082, 2935, '_widgeties',

(4082, 2935, '_widgeties',

...so the change that I can see is that it's now part of the data is
encapsulated, like so:


Does anyone know what the "s:117" is referring to, and what the change
was made in regards to?
