Corrupted posts caused by deletion of uploaded images leaving abandoned imagelinks

Component: TinyMCE Keywords: editor images imagelink

I have to go into the HTML to clean up just about every post on my wife's blog, in which she includes multipe pictures. Her disappointed comment was "This is something I'm supposed to be able to do on my own.", but she should not have to know how to interpret HTML to put a few pictures in a blog and move them around so that they look nice. I expect a lot of people just run without WYSIWYG because of this error. This started in 1.6 I think. I used the 2.1 Bug Hunt as an excuse to figure out the steps to produce the problem.

Demonstrated in 2.1 here: http://www.thecodecave.com/21/?p=4

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Type a line into a new post
  1. Upload an image using the tool below the post
  1. Insert image linked to original using thumbnail
  1. Resize the image and realize it looks bad or just decide on a different pic. Right click on the original and delete it.
  1. Insert the picture again, use the full image if you like or use thumbnail again. (Or instead of 4&5, just RightClick cut and paste the image to a new location)
  1. View post and see all your ending text has become a link...

Looking at it further, I think that the problem centers around the right clicking on the image only effecting the image.

Actually I remember this happening on my wife's blog last year when she was running 1.5. So it was in that version too.
