New Map Tour is breaking my Web Maps!

Heads UP! If you use Bing as a base in your Web Map then build a Map Tour using that Web Map and save the tour, your Web Map will break. I  found this out the hard way but then went back and did a few tests and here is what I found.

When I make a Web Map using Bing Maps Roads as a base, the Map Contents section of Details shows this url reference:

When I use this Web Map in a Map Tour and save the tour, the url reference for the Bing Maps Roads base changes to this and the map will no longer open.

Oddly this only seems to happen when saving from the Map Tour (I resaved the Web Map in the Map Viewer and everything was fine).

I have Map Tours that currently use Bing as a base and I'm afraid the next time I update them and hit save, I will break my Web Maps which would obviously be very frustrating. 

Anyone else experience this?
