Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2010-05-18 21:20:32 UTC
Removing reference to "Search and Replace" from summary, I fail to see how S&R is related at all.

This is a very interesting mix between IE including the trailing space in the selection and [[Foo ]]bar being interpreted as [[Foo bar|Foo]] due to the link trail. The best fix is probably to make the link dialog smart so it inserts [[Foo]]<SPACE> when it really wants to insert [[Foo<SPACE>]]

Fixed in r67543.
