I've got a variable number of dynamic sidebars in my custom theme with 13 minimum. The problem I'm having right now is that whatever sidebar happens to be the 3rd one registered, does not show the first instance of some of the widgets placed inside of it (like the recent posts and some of my custom widgets). I haven't tested this extensively to know all the affected widgets/sidebars, but sidebar #3 and the default recent posts widget are causing problems. The strange thing is that if I put 2 instances of the recent posts widget, the 2nd will show up no problem (and the same with my other custom widgets). I'm pretty sure this error isn't being caused by any of my code, since all my sidebars are the same and this problem doesn't occur with any of the other sidebars I've tested (again, I didn't test all of them). This behavior seems completely unrelated to any of the widgets in other sidebars. Any ideas? I don't have the time right now to peruse the widgets.php include or I would try and narrow it down more (maybe later tonight).
