Reporting a bug per Peter Thoeny's request. See also Support web issue TWiki:Support.SID-01825
I have a very simple TWiki topic that contains a single line, which I created using the raw editor (not
This topic contains nothing but a link to the !TWiki [[http://twiki.mycompany.com/wiki/bin/configure][configure]] page.
If I then use the WYSIWYG editor to add another line, and do NOT
touch the line containing the fully qualified URL to the Configure page, the URL nevertheless gets replaced so that, using "raw view" the topic now contains:
This topic contains nothing but a link to the !TWiki [[bin.configure][configure]] page.
And this sentence.
So, I added the "And this sentence." But notice that the original URL for Configure has been replaced by "bin.configure".
What's up with that? It calls into question every edit we've ever done with the WYSIWYG editor. How many other things has it silently changed without our being aware of it?

, which describes similar issues with the WYSIWYG editor five years ago. Unfortunately, this was never raised to a high enough problem to be addressed.
TWiki does a roundtrip TML => HTML => TML translation when editing and saving a topic with the WYSIWYG editor. There are cases where this roundtrip does not result in the same content as you have discovered. These issues need to be fixed one by one.
