#28565: Hotlink defaults to local site prefix after first such use

     Type:  defect (bug)    |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal          |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General         |    Version:  3.9.1
 Severity:  normal          |   Keywords:

 I frequently link to other sites. I generally use 'open in a new window'
 option. I rarely link to content in my own site. Today I did so, and then
 realized that an earlier, external page link, went to the wrong place. So,
 I un-linked it, and re-linked it using (as always) cut&paste from the
 other Firefox window.
 This one link failed after the post was updated: the URL when editing in
 WordPress did not show this, but in reality, my website was prefixed to
 (in this case Wikipedial) the page I'd linked to.
 I retried several times, then exited WordPress administrator entirely, re-
 entered, and fixed the hotlink.
 So, I'm pretty sure that the WordPress editor 'remembers' (incorrectly)
 that you want to link locally, even when you say you don't.
 Again, re-entering WP admin cold, I could make the link correctly.
 I am using 3.9.1 but 2011 theme, not latest update.
