Grammar gripe: "The problem is, is that . . . " :(

If I hear that fine example of mangled English one more time, I'll clobber the speaker over the keppeleh with a paper towel (or knock her on the noggin with a wet noodle :) ).  There are very few circumstances in which it's grammatically correct to use the word "is" twice in a row.  The problem is that people use that grammatically-garbled phrase all the time.  Grumble, grumble, kvetch and mumble . . . :(
