#19484: Shortcode skipping when using two different types for same keyword.

 I am writing a shortcode that has an open and closed format.  What I mean
 by that is:  open format is when you use a short code to open and close
 the content. Example:  "{{{[highlight lang='HTML'] <some html>
 [/highlight]}}}".  Closed format is when you just use the shortcode
 without incorporating anything else.  Example: "{{{[highlight lang='HTML'
 name='test']}}}" and it pulls the named script from the html database for
 highlighting.  If you only use one format in a page, it does fine.  But
 when you mix them, it does not properly work.  For example:
 [highlight lang='HTML' name='test']

 <some html>

 [highlight lang='HTML']

 <some html to be highlighted>


 The above example will always remove any content from the first shortcode
 to the closure shortcode thinking that the closure is for the first
 shortcode only.  The shortcode code should reset with the second shortcode
 defined and assume the first one does not have a closure shortcode.  If
 you reverse the order of the shortcodes, it will work fine, but that is
 not always the usage case.

 I have test this in 2.8 through 3.3 rc1.  I also could not find anything
 like this reported in the existing tickets.  Most likely no one has tried
 to do anything like this before.  I guess I could make it more than one
 shortcode, but I like the flexibility of the this format.
