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.
