Would this bug have affected edits made with the 2017 wikitext editor in the same way as the visual editor? (That seems likely, since the 2017 wikitext editor is a mode within Extension:VisualEditor.)

Well, selecting a namespace has an automatic "Exclude unselected" effect when "Exclude selected" is not selected.
When any namespaces are selected, but "Exclude selected" is not selected, only the selected namespaces are shown, so other namespaces are effectually excluded. This is how it worked and still works with my filters (which I have kept) which were affected by the bug, and how it works with any filter.
Thank you. Then I think the upcoming Tech News is worded correctly about this.
With a thought to the Tech News notice:

@Johan, something for Problems in the next Tech News?
@Mooeypoo, as expected all my English saved filters with exclusions will need to be re-saved, while all of my Swedish old saved filters now work as they should again.

Yes, in my Swedish account, I haven't made any change to my saved filters in more than a month (other than selecting active filters). I'll get back to you after the SWAT.
After the SWAT, I will retry my older saved filters which have exclusions. As I said in the bug description, my default Swedish filter still works correctly on page load (but not when subsequently selected).

At WP:VPT#Why am I seeing a "Welcome" message?, Whatamidoing (WMF) mentioned: "One of the devs also suggested making it possible to dismiss things like this by clicking anywhere outside the box".

Perhaps T48750#2176499 has a better description of the problem.

Notice that "User:Foo_/_bar" is a subpage not of "User:Foo", but of "User:Foo_".

I found an older feature request for basically the same thing, T11578: Direct access to the history page containing the listing corresponding to a past revision.
