[wp-hackers] shortcode_unautop

Hey WordPress Hackers,

I was struggling with shortcode_unautop not working for a while and I looked into the function to figure out what's wrong. I've created a paste bin with the code in case you don't feel like finding the function (http://pastebin.com/VDMdXxj0). My question is: is there a reason some of the "*" repetitions also have a "+" directly following? I personally have done monsters of regular expressions and never seen the combination "[whatever]*+". Am I missing something? Also, when I checked with http://regexpal.com/, removing all the extra + signs magically made the function work *exactly* as expected. Is this a bug or do I not know regex as good as I though I do?

Also, if there's nothing buggy with the function, what would be the way to make sure something like the text in the bin below renders correctly?


Should I just remove the shorcode_unautop filter and do my own unautop? Thanks for any help with this!
