This happens because this URL passes our regex pattern. Don't think we can identify such invalid urls in regex.. (This one might actually become a valid id in future).

Instead if the fetching of the photo fails the error dialog should appear.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
