Petty Bug?

Hi, if I enter the following text in FogBugz:

Presumably if I put Bug 404 in here then it'll cause problems! what about Bug 1a or Bug a01? or even bug3 or maybe bug 4?

then it consistently only changes the "Bug 4" bit of "Bug 404" into a hyperlink.

Strange but true.

Why am I mentioning it here? Well, from my trial account I can't find a channel for reporting bugs so (from help) this seemed as good a bet as any

Thanks for the report Gwyn...

The bug is happening because the regular expression that looks for those strings is finding Bug 404 and doing the correct thing (making it into a link) and later when it finds Bug 4 it does the same thing but both to "Bug 4" and to the part of Bug 404 that is "Bug 4".

Anyway, I'm adding this to the bug database and it should be fixed shortly...
