Actually, I'm pretty sure that our HTML filter (specifically the preg  
regex I just fixed a week or two ago) will prevent this message from  
ever showing fully because it will purge all text after the 1st  
closing html tag.  IIRC, I think tidy is set to ignore duplicate body  
tags with the understanding that the html filter will catch those  
later in the filtering process.
