Links in titles block editing links in dashboard

Another bug caused by markup in titles and this one's theme independent.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a post with a title containing a link like this:

<a href="http://www.cafeaulait.org/">Is This a Security Issue?</a>

  1. Go to your the dashboard; i.e. blog/wp-admin. In the sidebar look at the POSTS. The first post should now have a link like this:

<a href="editing link"><a href="http://www.cafeaulait.org/">Is This a Security Issue?</a></a>

This is invalid, but in most browsers the link you follow when clicking comes from the supplied title rather than the internal edit link for that post.

I've verified this in 2.0.7 and others have verified it in the 2.1.3 RC and the trunk.

I suspect the fix involves removing links, and probably all other markup from the title before sticking it in the posts sidebar on the admin page.

Still to be determined: are there other pages in the admin section that need this treatment? Can one inject JavaScript into the admin pages in this fashion?
