IIRC, not just this one. I have had written a plugin that tried to do
some filtering, only to find that "WordPress should correct invalidly
nested XHTML automatically" setting is inteferring with it. In older
wordpress, this setting forcefully turn on wpautop before calling any
plugin, rendering the remove_filter() call completely useless. Don't
even bother to check newer version is doing it anymore.
