Custom toolbar buttons location changes

Image of the changed toolbar buttons position

After the upgrade to mw1.19, the custom toolbar keeps switching positions from appearing correctly at the end of the regular toolbar to splitting the regular edit toolbar into two parts. Also the revised code for custom toolbar buttons doesn't work for me.

This happens on Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia and most importantly on Wikisource, where most of my editing is done.

Recently, the positional change became more frequent, and I copied the source page code of both conditions, and created a .jpg image of both as they appear in Wikisource.

Version: 1.19.0
Severity: major

The preamble: The wikisource editor environment is made up of two toolbar button sets.

The attached images display the first step of Wikimedia modifications to the "wikisource toolbar button layout" in wmf version 1.18f9. In this version the additional custom edit buttons added by users, which were always located at the end of the toolbar, have been inserted between the "wikisource specific" and the "wikimedia standard toolbar" buttons sets.

The 2nd step of the wikisource editor toolbar layout changes is reported in Bug 39367.

Hi ineuw! Sorry that nobody has taken a look at this report yet and given feedback.

Which browser(s) and version does this happen with?
Can this be seen on a public Wikimedia wiki, or is this a private wiki? If private, which MediaWiki version do you run currently, and does this still happen?

This is not part of the WikiEditor extension, but of core
