Thanks, I've applied a modified version of this patch. I suspect that
the underlying problem is still there (in that those dashes are being
treated as hyphens), but none of the solutions we recommend work in that
case and I think it's better to just be quiet about it in that edge
case. Presumably people using draft mode know what they're doing.
