“I dont see how this is a wordpress issue. Its clearly a problem with the theme function.” – This panel is the default one from WP. To make sure that the problem comes not from our theme, try to activate Storefront (default WC theme) and check the panel then.
Widgets could be messed up after theme switching, so open the Appearance > Widgets tab before switching to be able to move the widgets to the correct area after switching back.
