I don't know if this is relevant, but the same code "{{referências}}" expands to something different on [[pt:special:ExpandTemplates]]:

<h2 style="cursor:help" title="Esta seção não é editável por razões técnicas. Edite a página toda em vez disso.">Referências</h2>
<div class="reflist references-small" style=""><references group=""></references></div>

That's pretty much the same as the expansion that leaks into the article, except for the first tag (the <h2>).

This little devil can be reproduced at

(remove the template at the top and click save)

It is a very common case, and VE cant be used safely on pt.wp until this is fixed.

Im guessing this is related to the high priority Cite enhancement bug 51260.

I can't reproduce this now using a simple test case. Has it still been happening on pt.wp?

I was NOT able to reproduce it following the steps from comment 0 and of comment 3, and also in the case of comment 4. Moreover, I don't remember seeing any new reports on this, so I'm marking this as FIXED (but I don't know which code change fixed the bug).
