This is slightly aggressive <nowiki>ing by Parsoid – looks to still be an issue. Is it a part of a wider task?

Nominating as blocker since it's a pretty nasty issue. I'm not sure if it's still happening but we should make sure.

I'm unable to reproduce. I suppose this was fixed in the round of nowiki work last quarter. Please reopen if seen again.
