#14211: Full Screen view in TinyMCE can destroy post

 Priority:  normal             |   Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  TinyMCE            |     Version:                 
 Severity:  normal             |    Keywords:                 
 In certain cases, switching to full screen view in TinyMCE can destroy a
 post's contents.

 Here's one way to reproduce this.

 1. Get the file bad-full-screen.txt attached to this ticket

 2. Create a new post in any 3.0 blog

 3. Switch to HTML

 4. Paste from above file

 5. Update/publish (or anyway, save)

 6. Switch to Visual Editor

 7. Hit Full Screen

 Now, the Full Screen view doesn't just hide the text, it removes it - when
 you switch back to normal view, the post is empty (except for a line break
 with mce_bogus="1").

 This looks like it's caused by something in the last three paragraphs.
 When I paste the text in paragraph by paragraph, the paragraph that seems
 to be responsible is the one that starts with "To begin with, we're going
 to..." (the third paragraph from the end). For e.g., If I go through the
 above process, but between stage 8 and stage 9 I remove that paragraph,
 everything works fine.
