I have attached a minimum working example.  The bad formatting also
occurs when just pasting the link.  In the example, Org mode highlights
from beginning of the phrase "=verbatim text 1=" to the end of the
phrase "=verbatim text 3=" in the verbatim font style. Part of the link
is hidden as normal, but the text within the region of now verbatim text
is not hidden, including some of the brackets.

I have reproduced this without loading a configuration, so it is present
in version of Org included in the Gccemacs branch of Emacs.

Does that help?

Thank you.

The link [[phrase with =verbatim text 1=][a phrase with =verbatim text 2=]] followed by a phrase in =verbatim text 3= followed by normal text.
