No, I've not meant the triple dots. Long plain URLs (i.e. without the leading [ url ] and trailing [ /url ]) are pretty often visually shortened this way.
Scrambled is possibly not the best term.
Look carefully and try to quote or edit my message: it does not contain any url. Yet I suppose the TT plugin has prefixed just the first (quoted) permalink with [ url= ] and terminated just the second permalink with [ /url ], thus sort of created a long URL cross the end of the quote.
The Android TT client (version 2.4.13) just displays them. But the iOS TT client (version 1.17.1) stumbles over it - it displays just the leading text and initial part of the quoted text, up to the first [ url ].

trying to get used to the good new asocial Android 4.xx.0.yyy (OP-X March-me-Low).
