No, it's fine to keep this report open. Personally, I think this is a bug as
well; I have to look at the code, but I doubt it's so "smart" as to double the
percent sign intentionally, and if it were, that'd be an example of the kind of
trying-to-outguess-the-user pseudo-smartness I don't really like, especially
when it doesn't actually work.

Variable expansion only hits when an actual variable is named (e.g. %B for
bold), otherwise, typing a single % is fine, so there's no reason to double it
in the example provided here. And if the copied input box text *would* include
something like %B, auto-escaping would still be wrong to do because the chances
are the user does want bold in the text. I actually can't think of any scenario
in which auto-doubling the percent sign on copy would make sense.
