Cannot create a TracLink to heading in ticket description

Perhaps an over-extension of the intended functionality of TracLinks, but I thought I would report it just in case it is a true defect in the intended design.

One can link to a section heading in a description: comment:description#anchor.

However, it doesn't seem to work to link to a section heading in the description field of another ticket: comment:description#anchor:ticket:num.

For example, see:

  1. demo-0.12/ticket/52
  2. demo-0.12/ticket/17

The resulting error when selecting the TracLink in (1) is:

No handler matched request to /ticket/ticket

Those links are indeed defective, but the intent was never to allow to specify linking to an anchor within a comment, as the comment: links are simply shorthands to link to the comment anchor itself.

(well, equivalent for the target, the link title is more up to the point for the comment: syntax)

Back to the original point: the examples you mentioned in those test tickets (comment:description#Section1 and comment:description#Section2:ticket:52) should actually not be rendered as links (or a missing link with appropriate explanation in the link title).

Seems I have a knack for finding problems and misinterpreting the actual defect ;)
