 I messed around for a while trying to write unit tests, but it's not
 really practical. (wptexturize() loads all the replacement texts into a
 static variable on the first load, before the test would have access to
 filter 'gettext'.)

 I did manage to reproduce the issue, and I can confirm that slashes appear
 to be the issue. When our content comes from the db and looks like this:
 `Here are some \"quotes\"`, wptexturize() first inserts a space to make \"
 quotes \" and then interprets the quotes to belong to the slashes - thus
 the incorrect direction on the first one.

 My gut feeling is that, instead of backing up wptexturize, we should be
 running stripslashes_deep() earlier, since the root of the problem is BP's
 perennial double-escaping. Does anyone see an issue with moving our
 'stripslashes_deep' filters back to priority 9, or even earlier?
