Markdown: Bad recognition of link end for some unicode chars #1947

Minimal reproducing example:

This is displayed as normal text.
This isn't.!

Steps to reproduce: Save it as, and open it in geany. Then delete the last exclamation mark to get around #971.

Expected behavior: Both normal text lines are displayed using the "normal text" style.

Actual behavior: The last line's style indicates that it is somehow still part of the link. Not visible in the short example: This affects the entire rest of the document.

Screenshot of the faulty behavior

Note that even before this "remove the last exclamation mark" step, one can see faulty behavior. Specifically, the T is styled wrong.

Highlighting is provided by the Scintilla editing widget Geany uses. Does the problem also occur with Scite (the Scintilla test editor)? If so best to file a bug on Scintilla, if not probably will get fixed during some Scintilla update.

Note still happens with Scintilla 3.10 PR so not fixed there.
