I switched over the the new WikiText editor yesterday, but I still randomly get the old WikiText editor when clicking the Edit tab on articles. I suspect this is an issue with the init code being slow to load.

What browser/OS are you using? I haven't counted carefully, but I feel like I'm seeing this more often in Firefox 50 than in Safari 10.
I just opened ten pages via Special:Random at enwiki in each browser. In Safari, all 10 opened in the 2017 wikitext mode. In Firefox, the first opened with no toolbar at all (the 2003 wikitext editor?), the second and eighth in the 2010 WikiEditor, and the other seven opened as expected in the 2017 wikitext mode. One possibility: Does it load the older versions if the page hasn't finished loading (in Read mode) before I clicked the 'Edit source' button?
Using Chrome 55.0.2883.87 m, I never get to use the 2017 wikitext editor when I click on the "Edit wikitext" tab. I always have to click the "Edit wikitext" tab, wait for the 2010 wikitext editor to load, then click again on the "Edit wikitext" tab and I can finally use the 2017 WikiEditor. I've made a few try using Firefox 49.0.2 and I've always got the 2017 WikiEditor.
I've noticed something else: (using Chrome) if I click "Edit source" tab when I'm reading a page I get the 2010 WikiEditor, but if I click "Edito source" from any other tab (History or checking a Diff) I always get the 2017 WikiEditor.
I can claim this bug I use almost every time keyboard shortcut (alt-shift-e) and it behaves that way really randomly. I think it could be something with namespaces or some different page property, which is more widely expanded through wiki pages
I found out, that if I press alt-shift-e (to edit a page) when being on its ''What links here'' or ''Related chanes'' page, every time it opens OWE instead of NWE (tested today on cswiki, single edit tab is not accessible for this wiki yet)
I've tested other scripts like in gadgets-tab of settings on german wikipedia, and after saving a talk page, none of the scripts start working. Well, i hope it'll help.
When I click some link in Wikipedia and then click "edit source" before than the page is fully loaded (under 1 second), it will be opened in the old editor for me. I'm using Firefox. So it's as Kaldari said above. And red links are always opened in the old editor.
