This question displays correctly when viewed in the /questions page:

enter image description here

But in the question queue, the preview is messed up: enter image description here

My guess is that this is a result of cropping the MathJax markup halfway so that the preview stub becomes invalid MathJax. We can fix this simply by

  • Removing the complete MathJax block if it would be cropped
  • Cropping after the MathJax block

Note that the markup contains $ inside the MathJax in this case. I will try to edit that away using \begin{cases} and report back.

After the edit it looks somewhat better, but still wrong: enter image description here

This still occurs 2 1/2 years later. Either it wasn't fixed or the bug has resurfaced.
