Text Widget Visual Editor breaks formatting on html

Unlike editing pages, the new widget visual editor on 4.8 will break HTML formatting on new and existing text widgets when switching back and forth (even without saving).

Also of note (though this is probably a wpautop thing): on our installation, this also started adding <br> and <p> tags around comments and empty spaces where there were none before (we disable wpautop globally); we haven't had time to investigate so I can't be sure this visual editor is the cause, but it was worth noting.
