The unparsing of Latex code occurred due to a mistake I made when trying to resolve an issue with mimetex a few months ago. Technically, all the BBCode could be reparsed. In order to achieve this, however, I would need to use a plugin that, as far as know, is rather "very unstable". This means that, while this could repair our database, this could also introduce subtle errors that would either make it crash instantly (no problem, we have backups) or in the future (more annoying, because it'll be way more difficult to root out errors then, and very hard to correct them). The only good solution is that I dig out into the code myself and proofcheck the pluggin before I use it (in this way, should a problem occur, I'll be able to do the maintenance myself asap).

To reparse a post, locate a closing latex tag and change "[/latex]" to " [/latex]". If you reedit the post, you will notice that the added space has disappeared. You don't need to add the space if you are making some other change anyway.
