"New links" detected even though nothing is added

It is probably a complete waste of time to report any further problems with the wiki at this point, but just for completeness' sake: the detection of "new external links" that triggers an extra security question gives false positives when undoing revisions. When I undo the spam edits using the "undo" link in an article's history and just hit submit without changing anything, it will still claim that I added new external links, when I most obviously did not.
