Why are Priority and Status now required on Tasks as of Winter '18?

As of Oct. 12, any unit tests we have in a Winter '18 org that create Tasks are failing with a message of:
REQUIRED_FIELD_MISSING, Required fields are missing: [Status, Priority]: [Status, Priority]

This seems to be getting enforced at the data level not just the interface level now.

Anyone know what changed to make these fields required now?

Apparently this was just some one-time error in orgs updated to Winter '18 on Oct 6. It did not affect our orgs updated on Oct 7.

Our overnight run of unit tests in our 30 orgs produced this in 6 of the 8 orgs that were upgraded to Winter '18. A subsequent run ~6 hours later is not throwing the error, so it seems like it was an overnight anomaly that may no longer be present.
