URLs ending in a bracket ) aren't parsed properly


If I enter a URL which ends in a ) into the Quick Reply box, the parser generates the following code:

[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Star_(song[/url])

which puts the bracket outside of the hyperlink, as below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Star_(song)

Not sure if this is fixable, but thought I'd flag it anyway.

For URL's with that syntax I'd recommend manually adding the [url][/url] tags. Thanks for the feedback.
