Heh. That's actually quite amusing. :-)

Irritating I grant, but amusing that it just happened to coincide with a
 real HTML word.

I've logged that as a bug.

I'm in the final prep with getting 3.7.4 out - so won't be fixed in
there. Trying to *finally* get 3.8.1-beta1 out - so would prefer not to
put a fix in there, probably 3.8.1-beta2.

Hopefully 2-4 weeks. If urgent, let me know and I'll see if I can't get
something patched together sooner.
In the meantime, I'd suggest doing a prefilter with egrep or similar to
filter the problem away?
