I started seeing this when I switched servers, from self-hosting on 
4.3.8 to TextDrive on 5.0.3.

I was able to fix it though. I did some troubleshooting deactivating 
plugins and noticed that the issue disappeared after I disabled a 
particular plugin. I then realized that it reminded me of an issue I 
saw when I was testing plugins that were saved with a BOM, so the first 
thing I did was to check for that. My text editor said there wasn't a 
BOM in the file, but I did a "Save As" anyhow, to force it to rewrite 
the file, and for some reason the issue completely disappeared after 
that. Go figure. I still don't know if it was related to a BOM or not, 
but somehow saving it again fixed everything.

So to the folks who are experiencing this issue: try disabling plugins 
one at a time (you'll have to switch to the default theme to test), and 
once the issue goes away, try simply opening the last plugin disabled, 
and doing a forceful save to make sure the entire file gets rewritten 
again. Let us know if the same thing works for you.

The nightlies don't have the date in the version string anymore, so I
