Has anything changed that could have an impact on text encoding for Custom Components

We have our own text editor that we use as a custom component. This editor hasn't been changed in months but recently we've been seeing strange characters. You can see an example of this in the screenshot.


This also shows up when loading items that haven't been changed in years. When looking at the raw value in the DB these characters aren't visible. However it seems to happen where non-breaking space characters are (both \u00A0 and  ).

So I assume it must be related to the way Retool transfers these values to custom components. Has anything changed there recently? This occured for the first time around last week for us.
