WordPress 2.5 linking problem…

I guess anyone following this blog will have noticed the problems I have when trying to link to other pages on this domain. It has been a common occurence for the first comment on every post about a new article to point out the link to the article doesn’t work…

It would appear that when I place a link to an article on oracle-base.com, WordPress tries to strip off the domain to make it a relative reference. I guess that makes sense when linking to other blog posts because it means you can move the blog to a new domain and not break all the links. The problem occurs when the link is to the main website, which is effectively an external site. More often than not, this results in a broken link. When I link to pages not part of oracle-base.com, it work fine.

This only seems to have happened since I moved to WordPress 2.5…

Is anyone else having this problem? 

Cheers
