Extra blank lines showing up in posts

Some users are having extra blank lines added to their posts. If they include one blank line, what comes out is three. See this thread for examples and a brief off-topic discussion of the problem:

    Good to make a new thread for this. It has been going on for a while. When I see it happening I usually go back and edit the comment but it doesn't seem to happen every time. It also happens in PM's, and there you can't go back and edit.

    @Huw I've taken some screenshots of the HTML code and what it looks like, maybe this can be of help?

    So this is how my comment shows up the first time: as you see, that gives extra lines.

    This is what I typed, just a paragraph sapced:

    This is the HTML: it seems to add extra br in there, you could take that out every time but that's a lot of work.

    Don't know if it's helpful at all, but if this could be sorted, that would be great!

    As you can see, the forum made extra spaces in my comment again. I'll leave it like that for now so you can see the issue in the source maybe.

    I've no idea why it's doing this, but as you point out above, if you look at the posts in question in markup view there's loads of superfluous DIVs in them.

    I'll report it to Vanilla Support if it remains a problem at the end of the week. 

    This one of mine is fine...

    I always thought those extra spaces were just big images that can't load. Nice to know it's not a problem entirely on my end, for once.

    Yep, I've been experiencing the same problem for a few weeks.

    Still happening to me. Even in PM, just writing the message below. For anoyne getting these messages from me with extra spaces, I'm not trying to be dramatic. I also remembered when it started, it was when the big cycling trip was happening. I remember thinking, I'm not going to mention it now since Huw is probably pretty busy :)).

    Hiya X,

    Santa has posted your parcel! Let me know when it gets there please.

    ^so funnily enough, it's not put any lines in between there, althoug it does in my PM's. And it did put an extra space between my paragraph and the other one.
