That file contains three separate [window] tags and three separate [window_definition] tags. The issue would be (almost certainly) in the [window] tag that has two portraits.

Where would I look to edit the GUI2 markup for this?

I'm not sure exactly of the cause here, but it seems like something in the markup - that is, the GUI2 markup defining the window. I'll try to remember to look into it later (or get Vultraz to do so, as he's better at GUI2 layout), unless you manage to figure it out on your own.

I was looking into doing it myself, and it doesn't seem to work correctly:

I'm not sure. I have no immediate plans to do so, at least.

Are you planning on attaching it to the [message] tag?

I have added support for this to the Lua API (the wesnoth.show_message_dialog function), though it has not been wired into the [message] tag at this time.

To show a message with two portraits, the portrait and mirror keys in the first argument to show_message_dialog define the left portrait, while the second_portrait and second_mirror keys define the right portrait. With two portraits, the left_side key is ignored.

I'm busy rewriting the widget engine and I've heard this request before. So I'll work on it but it might take some time.

As a campaign designer, I've run into several situations where it doesn't quite make sense to use only zero or one units' portraits in a message. The most obvious example is the message "Foo kills Bar!" - it would be nice to get both Foo and Bar in the picture. The most obvious place to put the second portrait would be on the right side of the text (which would also look cool.)

As a more speculative proposal, there could be a way for WML to freely specify the placement of images and blocks of text in a message. After all, messages are the primary form of communication between campaign designer and player. (Mmmm, a campaign without messages? someone should try that ^_^)
