User @mentions in chats are no longer links to start a chat with the tagged user in Hipchat

Before the latest Hipchat upgrade, when I mentioned a user using "@exampleusername" in a chat, their name would become a link to chat with them. Now, only the @ sign appears as part of the tag and their username does not become a link to their profile. Is anyone else having this issue?

I'm using the native mac client version 3.2.1 (160) running on OS X 10.9.

Hi Landon! Definitely looks like a bug. We've had one other report, and that user said quitting and restarting the app corrected the problem. Can you give that a try?

Restarting the app worked. Thank you!
