0006403: Brackets in nicknames are not escaped on thoughts and preferences screen
Adding square brackets, e.g. [ and ], to a unit's nickname can produce strange results on the "thoughts and preferences" screen ([u]-[v]-[Enter]).
In most cases, the text between the brackets is absent when viewed. However, using certain tags can produce strange results, so I'm assuming it's being treated as markup. For example, [B] produces a paragraph break: http://i.imgur.com/FV41R8l.png [^]
[C:4:0:1] produces red text for the remainder of the paragraph: http://i.imgur.com/kYFMsyq.png [^]

Text in the title is not affected.

The visible aspect of this problem no longer occurs in 0.40.14, since the thoughts and preferences screen only uses pronouns.
