[Talk-GB] OSM shortlinks problem

One for devs really but I'm not on the list. Perhaps someone could pass this
on?

I've noticed that the osm.org shortlinks ending with a dash "-" often don't
work in emails. The dash gets missed off from the link. In my area, at
least, this seems to move the centre slightly and switch from zoom level 17
to 18.

For example this:
http://osm.org/go/euut_VcMR-

Gets interpreted as this:
http://osm.org/go/euut_VcMR

Is there any chance the shortlinks could avoid ending in a punctuation mark?

Regards,
Tom
