Yahoo Widgets 4 Worth The Upgrade?

I just upgraded my copy of Yahoo Widgets to the new 4.0 build released recently. I’m not sure if it was a good idea. It probably wasn’t, unless Yahoo releases a patch soon.

Okay, I hate that new sidebar-dock-thing  they added. It just irritates the heck out of me, and provides no useful improvements.

What keeps happening to my widgets?! As soon as I upgraded, they all vanished. I managed to restore all the ones I needed after 30 minutes of using that annoying sidebar-dock-thing. Today, all but 3 are gone again! What’s going on? Is this a bug?

I want my widgets to work again correctly, and I want a way to permanently disable the stupid sidebar-dock without compromising any functionality. I’m going to go see if there’s a way to un-upgrade.
