WordPress Designers Stops Working due Incomplete Widget Settings

I had a theme since wordpress 4 installed, and in some of the recent updates the WordPress Designer Mode was broken (Stops loading with Javascript error).

I finally found the rootcause which is array missing array settings for 2 widget zones in the widget theme config entry.

This was the entry I am talking about:

For two zones, the array entry is missng: a:0:{}

I corrected the entry manually in the database and the problem was fixed for me:

However there are certain areas where the existence of this Array is not checked causing unexpected errors.
