Inserting row in VE duplicated entire contents of table, but it only seems to happen in this one specific table

Description

Here's what I remember doing:

  1. Go to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_contractors
  2. Open VisualEditor
  3. Click on "Dan Rosenthal" cell
  4. Click "Insert row above"
  5. Fill in new row with info
  6. Save

Somehow this resulted in a massive duplication of the table; see the diff for an example.

This is still happening, and you can even see it in the diff.

Deskana moved this task from To Triage to TR1: Releases on the VisualEditor board.
Deskana added a project: VisualEditor-Tables.

I tried reproducing this on a few other tables, and couldn't. It's likely some specific property of this table. Worth investigating at some point, but seemingly not urgent given the limited scope.
