The widgets page displays all available (registered) widgets. They can appear in three sections: Within the list of available widgets, within the list of Inactive Widgets and in the list of the sidebars.
The logic where such a widget is displayed is somehow broken. I can not precise this but what I experience on certain sites is the fact that widgets disappear. Somehow the available widgets list gets incomplete missing some widgets that are neither part of any sidebar nor incative.
I created a plugin to dig into the details and even did make a look on the widget listing code. I strongly suggest that the widget listing code is completely refactored because it's pretty akward. There are bugs in there that lead to dataloss, which is a strong signal that the code is overall not working properly.
I experienced it now with at least three sites otherwise I would not have taken the time to report it.
Please asign this ticket to the coder who is taking care for the widgets.
