Strange behavior with lots of unclosed tags

I posted an example on the test forum. I have a user who discovered that if he enters many unclosed <s> and <blockquote> tags, a huge amount of tag nesting is generated. I haven't tried other tags, but I replicated his specific example. It seems like a bug.

So in the example, the inputted character length of the unclosed tags is 846. The ouput generated by htmlpurifier is 60,132 characters!

Yeah, that's a bit goofy.
