The widget library (widget.el) is part of Emacs so you should send a
bug report with

  M-x report-emacs-bug

It is of course very nice if you send a patch for the bug together
with the bug report, but that is not necessary.

If you can please use the current pretest version of Emacs when
checking and reporting the bug.
