Is the forum's markdown processor broken?


I’ve noticed in my last few posts that the way the forum is formatting inline code snippets is… weird. It seems to be randomly deleting the spaces between code elements, and I can't work out why. It works for a while and then stops. Then starts again… wat.

The above has spaces in the correct spots in the MD source… but they just don’t show up consistently in the output (I checked the generated HTML in the FF dev tools).
