Whatever I put in one instance of a widget copies onto a previous instance of it.

Ok this I thought had to do with the wysiwyg editor widget plugin I had but now I see that whatever I put in the custom sidebars plugin sidebar, one instance say a list if there's another instance of the list widget it gets overwritten by whats in the second one!

This happens with a text widget or with a list widget and I assume would happen with any widget that requires input. So I now can't have multiple different instances of the same widget in my sidebars.

Understand? Please advise. Thanks!
