In 1.4.1 and earlier you had to have a "www." in front of domain names
for them to be recognized and turned into links. The code in 1.5.0 and
1.5.1 was a bit too casual and made some expressions clickable if they
only contained a dot in the middle of a word.

That has been fixed now, but it will now make geeklog.net clickable
(which it didn't do in 1.4.1), as it recognizes the ".net". Is that a problem?

Not in 1.5.2, but feel free to submit a feature request for 1.6.
