Latex should work fine. What is the problem?

EDIT: Oops. I see it. Something breaks a lot of the equations. Will check!

$x = a_0 + \frac{1}{\displaystyle a_1 + \frac{1}{\displaystyle a_2 + \frac{1}{\displaystyle a_3 + a_4}}}$

It appears that a lot of backslashes have been stripped from the equations. It is probably a bug in our forum software.

It seems as if it may be the process which rebuilt our posts after the recent update. I am testing it now and if the bug is there we have major beef with the developers!

$A_\infty + \pi A_0 \sim \mathbf{A}_{\boldsymbol{\infty}} \boldsymbol{+} \boldsymbol{\pi} \mathbf{A}_{\boldsymbol{0}} \sim\pmb{A}_{\pmb{\infty}} \pmb{+}\pmb{\pi} \pmb{A}_{\pmb{0}}$

Ok, a status update:

I have managed to repair all LaTeX codes (latex, math, imath and ce) posted prior to about September 1 or so. Those posted after I am not sure about, you'll have to check.

But it appears that when you go in to edit a code, the backslashes MAY be stripped out.

To me it always happens when I try to edit specific posts:

But not with others:

I'll report this as a bug.
