Inserting a link replaces my text

Every so often, I'll select some text to make it a hypertext link by clicking the Link button (Ctrl-L) and selecting another CityDesk article. However, instead of just making my text a link to the article, it also replace the text with the filename of the article.

For example, if my text is "And if you click here to read..." and I want "click here" to point to an article named "targetarticle", then the text sometimes becomes "And if you targetarticle to read....", where targetarticle is a link as well.

Anyone else seen this? Using current version of CD, but also happened with v1.x as well.

I've seen this happen many times, but so far I haven't found a repeatable way to get it to happen.

Likewise - I've seen this bug a LOT.    I haven't gotten it to reliably repeat - I'd say it happens about every 4th or 5th time I try to insert a link.

It seems to happen only/more when the link text is one word.
