WordPress 2.05 'bug': URLS stripped from category descriptions

I recently updated to WordPress 2.05. It was painlessly simple. However, I have found a serious bug that I'm sure must have been implemented as a security feature.

I display my category descriptions at the top of each category index page. I place links in some of them to related sites. However, after upgrading, I went to update one of my categories and add a link. When I did, all the links disappeared! The '<a>' tags remained, but all attributes were stripped!

I have looked around for any documentation on this, but until I find a fix I'm updating the descriptions manually in MySQL.

Has anyone else noted this, or found a workaround?
