Following this old question. This (bold+italics, when both bold and italics is generated using asterisk):

*when I'm uploading a transparent `.png` file (with alpha channel) **using Media Library***

works:

when I'm uploading a transparent .png file (with alpha channel) using Media Library

This (bold+italics, when bold is generated using asterisk and italics using underscore):

_when I'm uploading a transparent `.png` file (with alpha channel) **using Media Library**_

works, when put to post:

when I'm uploading a transparent .png file (with alpha channel) using Media Library

but fails when used in comment. A bug or a feature?

Our posts and comments are formatted using different systems. Obviously, this bug affected the comment formatting system, known as MarkdownMini.

This will be fixed as of build 3737 on MSO/MSE, and build 2860 on other sites.
