Thanks but I've seen that post already. I'm actually trying to move away from a solution that moves wpautop after short codes are rendered since I've had to implement multiple workarounds for plugins that rely on regular short code rendering. I ended up just implementing my own unautop that works for my needs. Almost like this guy's new solution linked at the top with a few tweaks. I'm still open to better alternatives. I was just interested why a built-in feature of wordpress doesn't really "work." Note:

…some content…

gets unautop-ed into

…some content…

I'd say that's broken.
