I am working on a theme that has sidebar_first and sidebar_second defined but hidden(not ready to use yet). When I enable the theme in a clean install of 7.x-dev the new theme automatically picks up the same block to region allocation as is done in Bartik. Which means that blocks are allocated to hidden regions that are not viewable in the admin/structure/blocks page and therefore I can't change them. Since the database seems to remember the block/region setup for my theme even if I delete it and copy it back, I had to unhide the region in my .info, clear cache, and then was able to move them where I wanted, and then change my .info again and clear cache again.
It is mildly annoying that a new theme picks up bartik's default block/region allocation to begin with but I guess any new person can figure it out. But it is a real problem if they are allocated to hidden regions on 1st enablement. This is more than an annoyance to me and I sincerely hope this isn't as designed.
