VisualEditor: Duplicating categories (and possibly also something else)

Assuming the user deleted the infobox without realizing it, I did not manage to reproduce the duplication of categories inside a reference tag (line 38); if I just copy/paste them they get nowikied, so it shouldn't be a vandalism.

CCing subbu and gwicke here. T52120 and T54238 come to mind, but I'm not sure if it's really a dupe.
Thanks.

Can you clarify what you mean with 'just copy/paste them'? Do you mean copy/pasting wikitext into VE?

Yes Gabriel, I tried to behave like a vandal :) and wanted to paste templates and categories into the reference, to understand if this was what the user had actually done.
But as you can see here https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Utilisateur%3AElitre_%28WMF%29%2FProve&diff=96710198&oldid=96710142 my result is different, in that the pasted content generated nowiki tags, so the duplication in the article is not a result of copy/pasting that content into the reference editor.

https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bello_de_Carcassonne&diff=107097528&oldid=107091155 duplicated two categories and added others, but not within a ref tag. It also added a blank (== ==) section heading after the misplaced cats.

Think this was all fixed
