I think I've seen a Trac ticket for something similar.. If a Sidebar
is removed whilst it has widgets on it, Those widgets are unnavailable
for the other sidebars.

I guess maybe upon a Theme change, Any sidebars which are not
registered in the new theme need to be cleared out.. Although i
thought that might already happen..
