[wp-hackers] Issue with embedding video links?

Confirmed, I can reproduce this on a localhost install. Schedule the
post, and it gets cleaned when it posts.

If I disable kses' filters by commenting out the unfiltered_html check
in kses_init(), then it doesn't happen and the post posts fine.

So what I think is going on is that in the publish action, the kses
filters are being added. This is because the "current user" is the
cron process, and that call is not authenticated, so the
unfiltered_html cap does not apply, so it's filtered.
