When I put a link into chat that has a space at the end of the link text, the chat window briefly shows the link as expected and then a second or two later changes to show the markdown.

Below are my two test strings. Notice that both have a space after JavaScript in the square brackets. The second string also has a trailing space at the end of the string. Both result in the same behavior.

[JavaScript ](http://chat.stackoverflow.com/rooms/17/)

The message is posted and looks like this:

Chat link as expected

A second later, the message changes to display this instead:

Chat link as displayed
