What issues does this actually cause for users? They should both be valid links...

Yes, the html is: “<a href="/wiki/Thread:User_talk:Qgil/Sounds_good_to_me" title="Link to">Link to</a>” but your browser will convert that into or or as required by the specification.

If you press that link and you are not sent there, it's a bug in your User Agent. What browser are you using?

That is not a link to be clicked, it a text to be copied. The relevant HTML in the popup is like this:

<th>Link URL:</th>
<td class="lqt-thread-link-url">/wiki/Page</td>

and the user can't use the text "/wiki/Page" to create a link ("[/wiki/Page this]" do not work)
