Mismatch detector is broken

It gets very confused. See attachment. It clearly isn't mismatched but it's complaining nonetheless.

Also, if I save this as a draft, then go to re-edit the draft, it pre-pends a code bbc in front of everything - as if the first code tag is irrelevant.

OK, I found the root cause of why this was broken.

You'll notice above the code block is a mismatched nb item. That was what was causing it to go wrong - because other stuff was trying to fix it like inserting tags to match the nb.

That could be really annoying and confusing.

nb is a special tag not parsed the same way. Maybe that's the reason.
Although really, I dunno. This code is rocket science. It's hard to make it simpler, even though I wrote it...
