Firefox freezes (script execution uses 100% cpu) upon trying to quote

Under some circumstances (which I haven't been able to figure out) trying to quote some text using the Quote button in the bar will cause wmd.js to loop. It happens every time on every browser (so it's not related to firebug).

I'll post a test case as an answer.

I could not reproduce this (Chrome 4.0, Windows). I tried quoting various permutations of the text in this answer. –  Michael Petrotta Feb 4 '10 at 4:13
    
@Micheal: you have to quote ONLY the line that says "quote this" (the last one). I reproduced it with chrome 4.0 on windows. Anyways jeff updated the other bug report (which turned out to be a duplicate after all) with status-reproduced –  Andreas Bonini Feb 4 '10 at 4:21
