Autolinking URLs adds a trailing </p>

When adding a URL without explicitly creating a link (just type URL, no use of square/round braces), a trailing </p> is added to the pointed-to address, rendering the link invalid. I've seen this happen when commenting answers. It seems to not happen when asking a question. You can find an example post where the problem occurs here:

Reported at askbot-devel issue #324: - https://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel/issues/324 but the issue was closed after a similar but different bug was solved... ...and I can't convince @Evgeny to reopen.
