#53520 new enhancement

Add regression test for the wp_option data corruption bug

Gutenberg v10.7.x introduced a bug that caused some wp_options to get blank or corrupted data after (any) settings were updated in the options-general.php page. This was eventually fixed in v10.7.4, with this PR: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/releases/v10.7.4. See https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso/issues/53447 and https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso/issues/53431.

There's already a regression E2E test in Gutenberg that was introduced in this PR: ttps://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/32797. Ideally, though, it'd be either moved to WP core or also implemented here. It doesn't need to be an E2E test, and could be a lower-level integration test, if we can figure out how to reproduce at a lower level (there was a failed attempt to do this, though, see this comment: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/32797#issuecomment-865005516.
