“link:” operator is broken in google with a hyphen in domainnames

While playing around with some nice search options that were mentioned here, i noticed a bug in the “link:” operator.

If your domainname has a “-” in it and you try to find the latest links the results are broken.

Example:
http://www.google.de/search?q=link%3Abr-online.de&hl=en&rlz=1B3GGGL_deDE220DE220&sa=N&output=search&tbs=qdr:d&tbo=1

Notice that the first result has a "<br >", a ".de" and the word "online" in it.

I have no clue how to tell google about their bugs, so i post it here and see what happens 🙂
