Web AppBuilder removes widgets when saving app

This doesn't happen all the time, but it's happening more frequently now.   Version 2.3

I make a change to an app that requires me to press the Save button for the app to remember the change.   At this point, the app forgets what map it is using and removes many (but not all!) of the widgets from the app.

And I don't mean "removes the widgets from the config.json file" when I say "remove".  I mean "deletes my custom widgets that I'm developing from the file system."  The dos command console the tool is running in clearly shows the list of widgets it is removing.

At this point, I back up every single file in the application to another directory before I make just a change. 

Thankfully I only lost half a day's work the first time this happened to me.  

Anyone else know what's going on?
