    Write a new post. Enter an a href link such as:


    and save the draft. WordPress causes a 503 server error, and the post does not save.

    The following links works correctly:

    So I presume that the problem is caused by a duplicate http in the link, but it isn't that simple.

    Setup is 2.5.1 on Linux/Apache, with very little in the way of customization.

    I'm getting the same problem, this time using the same type URLs in the context of sitemaps.

    I had to manually edit the tables in MYSQL to get it posted, not ideal!
