Embedding topics stopped working

About 7-10 days ago, Discourse stopped creating any new topics from our WordPress installation. WP is using wp-discourse-embed so its iFrame/JavaScript inclusion of comments. As far as we can see nothing has changed configuration wise. The only clue we’ve got is the Discourse error log now has a whole bunch of errors that look like

Job exception: undefined method `+@’ for #Nokogiri::XML::Element:0x00007f3ad52d6ba0
