I don't think this is actually a bug. This is the new layout for the editor. Just above YOUR red box you see the labels for the three rows below.

One VERY significant improvement is that the editing for the answer options allows for HTML tags.
For example in an array if you want to change the header spacings you can inset code such as:
<span style="white-space: nowrap;">0 - I really</span>
<span style="white-space: nowrap;">hate that one a lot</span>
which will provide headings as shown in the attached.
This allows you to minimize the "auto-hyphenate" of long headings.

You can also add code in the questions section such as:
<span style="color: rgb(255, 0, 0);">RED</span>

This new editor allows for very creative ways to display your questions and answers that was never possible before.
