Well it doesn't seem to be happening anymore.
It was for me this morning:
Ooooh there it did it again.
testing from link editor:
Link editor seems to hold when I highlight and drag and drop. If I copy/paste the link it will auto format it again. Perhaps it only does this for certain kinds of links? Although I tested my 3gstore link in that same discussion earlier and it auto formatted it.
Suppose I will have to make due with the link editor and carefully moving the link without using copy/paste. Oye.
