i. Read: talk pages where infobox-like elements on the side of a talk page.

I got really distracted by this task and just had to figure out a way to do this.

The problem also occurs with just image thumbnails (https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Talk:T278476), which might be more common than infoboxey things.

I've seen it a lot, but that's primarily because it occurs on my en.wp talk page, but it also happens when there are images, long archive links, etc, It's not massively common but it's not once in a blue moon either.
