Visual editor adds span tags with style by itself

Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)
I have noticed that the wordpress visual editor adds span tags with no reason. It happens when I create a bullet list or when I make a link.
I am able to reproduce the bug for bullet lists but I cant do it for the links. It seems to happen randomly.
To reproduce the bug for bullet list, I start with a title H3 then I click on the bullet list button. I start to write the list and then, when i save the draft, the first line has a span tag. This bug happens in several websites. Sometimes i get something like this :
<li><span style="line-height: 12.997159004211426px;"><strong>
<span style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">
I dont paste text from word to the visual editor. I write directy in the visual editor.
For links, I dont know when it happens, but I sometimes have a <span style="color:#333333">.
First, I thought i had the same bug than this one : #23461 which said it was a "long standing bug in WebKit"
but i had this bug in Firefox too which is not using Webkit but Gecko.
Then i thought it was a bug with the add_editor_style() function but it's not that too. I commented the function but the bug still happens.
