Editing page breaks file: links, but not http: links

I have some pages with several file: links. When I try to edit these pages, the file: links are broken, ie. the href tag etc. is removed, as soon as the editing page is entered. So I have to add every file: link once again.
Http: and ftp: links are not broken, only the file: links
In Confluence v. 5.x I did not have this problem.

Very annoying!

Does anyone have a hint, or is this question for Atlassian support?

Example

Before:
<a class="external-link" href="file://askfil1/ipclog" rel="nofollow">file://askfil1/ipclog</a>

After entering the editor the 'link' looks like this:
<a>file://askfil1/ipclog</a>

Confluence version 6.1.2
