System destroys pictured-links

I usually embed images into links like this:


Now I always get notifications from the System, that it edited my posts. When I open the post, I see it changed my version to the following:

[<img src='IMAGE_REL' alt=''>](<img src='LINK_REL'>)

What can cause this problem and how can I fix it if I can?

Can you provide a more complete, real example with actual values? What exactly is in IMAGE and LINK in your above example?

Oh sorry, it’s my fault!

It only does this if I link to an image.

No need to link to the image just paste the image in as an URL on its own line, eg.
