As has been reported in two previous questions on meta (here and here), the mathoverflow update generated a few problems with the rendering related to mathjax.
Initially there was a problem with backticks, but that was mostly solved by removing them automatically from posts. However, there remains a problem (such as here, here, and here and here, among many other examples) where the rendering seems to be completely broken, yet any edit — not matter how trivial — will cause the post to fix itself and render correctly.
Can someone explain what is going on? More importantly, will there be some update which will fix this issue automatically, or will these problems have to be fixed manually?
