Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Yes, every time.
In other user accounts? Untested.
On other computers? Untested.
When does the problem NOT occur? It would appear that since some members do have a shout-box, this only occurs for users wishing to add a shout-box. (Which, to answer the question, the problem doesn't appear to occur if you have already had a shout-box.)
