Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Very similar to @Gnome's earlier question. The markdown for automagically-inserted duplicate links breaks if the duplicate contains a URL in the title.

In this case, markdown splits the URL into its own link, and text earlier in the title is given the correct link to the duplicate question. The URLs work, but it looks wonky -- the question link doesn't span the entire question title, and users aren't expecting multiple links there.

erm. this doesn't appear completed; same problem persists. see example link in the question. – quack quixote May 24 '10 at 20:01
@quack fix is for future closings, not this one, which predates the fix. – Jeff Atwood May 24 '10 at 23:50
ok, thx for clarifying. i'll tweak this one to "hxxp" so that link shows up correctly. – quack quixote May 25 '10 at 0:43
