[wp-hackers] Excerpt output

A filter running at priority 100 is going to run after anything in core (which generally defaults to 10, but not always)... and anything added with the default priority (10).

Find where your theme or plugin adds do_shortcode to the_excerpt filter and hook in earlier (e.g. priority 5).

Keep in mind that strip_shortcodes removes all shortcodes and their content. You'll probably need a regex to strip out everything but the shortcode you want -- then let the do_shortcodes filter do it's job up the stack.
