E-Mail Addresses now hotlinks

Greetings,

First some history. We were on 12.0.6_11 (websphere) and all was right with the world. We applied hotfix 14 to solve some minor issues 13 and 14 addressed. Now I am finding some discrepancies in the e-mail address on the screen.

If I have a resource with an email address of first.last@test.com, it becomes a mailto hotlink. If I have an e-mail address of lastF@test.com, it becomes a link also. However if I have an e-mail address with an underscore, like first_last@test.com, there is no link and it looks like it did before.

In one of our other environments without the 14 hotfix, all addresses appear to be text only regardless of the format of the e-mail. The kicker is that I do not recall seeing anything in the release notes that talked about this functionality being new.

Has anyone seen this before? Sounds like a bug to me where the application sees the underscore and ignores the e-mail formatting.
