Search Results with <link> before the host name

I just did a search and the first result seems to have a malformed URL.

The link starts with http://%3clink%3e
which appears as http://<link> eg http://<link>www.example.com

I'm assuming you simply cannot have angle brackets in a host name so this must be a fault with google?

Certainly looks like it. I wonder if it's the result of indexing a <link> element somewhere.
