lightning:inputRichText component not working when deployed to new sandbox - quillLib.js error

I have a lightning component that contains a lightning:inputRichText field working in a sandbox. When I deployed the component to another sandbox using ANT, I'm getting an error about quillLib.js as shown below when I try to type in the form.

quillLib.js error occurring on lightning:inputRichText in new sandbox

Both sandboxes are on API v43.0.

Has anyone seen this error or know why it's happening? Will raise a case with Salesforce also, as it seems to be an internal error.

Managed to find an answer for this one through some experimentation - it seems that my force:recordData component (which was trying to populate a custom rich text field on my chat object) couldn't access the custom field in any sandboxes past the one where the object and field were originally created.

Even though I had layoutType specified as FULL, I had to specifically include the new "Body__c" field in the fields parameter. This is because I forgot to deploy the layout for the new object that included this field, so the only fields available when I specified "FULL" were the ID and any other required fields.

<force:recordData aura:id="chatRecordCreator" 
                      fields="Body__c" />

<lightning:inputRichText value="{!v.simpleNewChat.Body__c}" />

Seems like there was some internal access issue on the field which was causing the null pointer in the quillLib.js class. Once I specifically provided access to the field on the force:recordData component, it worked.

Some more information on the Lightning Data Service from the Summer '17 highlights here.
