Empty Blocks until save

Hi, I have the exact same problem described here When creating a blog post and go to edit the blocks, they are empty.

After I hit "save" and come back blocks appear as expected. This happens in both my local environment (mac php 5.6) and staging (linux pfp 7 ).

Can you see any problems already?

As you say, it sounds like the same problem.

Which just makes us 2 (reported) odd cases not enough to justify further investigation?

Certainly, when the next batch of Blog updates come around.
