Indeed. My Fault.

The intention here was to resolve the problem that scratchpad_link is used to generate, well, links to scratchpads. The problem was that if you mistyped the name of the person you were linking to, such as [pad://demrphq] you would a link like Scratch Pad Viewer which seemed odd and counterintuitive as it is now you get demrphq's scratchpad which at least looks more reasonable, is less suprising to the author of the link, and is easily corrected in the text box on SPV. However as the code in handlelinks settings had to do the lookup it meant there was no easy way to pass in the incorrect value. And I actually didnt want to add a new parameter because I know you have plans to redo some of that stuff anyway, so an additional parameter would just cause you more issues. Also I thought it made sense. :-)

my $user; if (ref $user_id) { $user=$user_id; $user_id=$user->{user_id}; } else { $user = $user_id=~/\D/ ? getNode($user_id, 'user') : getNodeById($u +ser_id); }

Seems to be the best way to deal with this... (IMNSHO anyway)
