Menu order not saving correctly 5.0.3

I have removed all plugins back to only the classic editor and the issue still persists.

After creating a new menu. I created about 30 custom links all with # as the link since they are temporary placeholders for a client. I then hit save and when I reloaded the page they are all in a mixed up order. When I add a new link to the menu it appears at the bottom of the list as expected, yet when I hit save and reload the page is is mixed in the middle of the links. No matter what, when I re-order them through the standard drag and drop after hitting save they got back to the random order the website saved them as.

No ideas whats causing this and I did a search in here and I couldnt find anyone else reporting this.

I've not experienced this on any of my other wordpress versions.

Hi, welcome to WordPress Trac and thanks for the ticket @routram92 !

I added 5 links with # anchor and diverse Titles, I tried to reorder them in different ways and I can't reproduce the issue (see screenshot below). Please can you test if the issue still happens with a fresh WordPress installation?
