Issue with link tool in block editor

After updating to 5.8.1, the link tool doesn't always work correctly. After I enter the text and press enter to add a link, it only links some of the words I highlighted. This is happening in Chrome on a Mac desktop. I haven't been able to recreate the issue on a PC.

Correction: I was able to recreate the issue on a PC in Chrome and Firefox after all. I tested with TwentyThrirteen, TwentySeventeen, and TwentyTwenty without any plugins installed. The issue doesn't happen every time I try to link text, but happens pretty frequently.
