Description

See, for example, http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Audie_Murphy&diff=560382883&oldid=560374610 - the line "ad a private-pilot license and" (image description) is clearly being taken from the article text "had a private-pilot license and a reported 8, 000 hours of flying time", but I have no idea how.

A user just came to IRC asking about this same issue. The user had made this edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Harry_Belafonte&diff=560738876&oldid=560738222

The user had only intended to make the changes that appear between lines 98 and 108; all of the other changes appear to be a product of this bug.

The same issue occurred for the user in http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Harry_Belafonte&diff=560737462&oldid=560717280.

These were fixed by Inez's new code from Thursday.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
