If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
My intent is to have a home page with a right sidebar that shows unique content from any other page. I also require a dynamic layout on that page.
I therefore created a dynamic template following Ismael’s advice as found here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -template-settings and selected the right sidebar layout and confirmed the following content:
text area/call out/quotes
I then proceeded to create a new widget area for that template. I’ve added content to the widget area and everything appears BUT I also get all the blog page widget content as well (which I don’t want). I’ve gone so far as to witness that if I remove the blog content in my dynamic selection, the problem disappears. But, voilà, I wish to keep this blog content on my front page (w/o its dragged widgets, of course). Anybody can light my candle on this one?

Yes, wordpress and its sidebars are stacking so that is the correct and expected behavior. If you want widgets visible only on a specific page I would recommend using something like http://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/ .
The widget area in the template builder works as a sidebar in addition to the page/blog/display everywhere widget areas and not as a ‘display only these widgets in this area’.
