The last breadcrumb on a search results page is not a link, but instead is just plaintext of the search keywords. The adaptive_preprocess_breadcrumb function adds RDF markup at the third character of the breadcrumb. This normally works fine for breadcrumbs since the first three characters are "< a ", but for breadcrumbs that aren't links (search keywords), it adds it into the keyword itself.

This is what I get when searching for "engineering" on my dev site.

Right, this whole idea of inserting rich snippets using string manipulation is a problem, I think we either remove it or find a better way, if possible.

So I messed around with a potential fix. I attached it as a patch. It runs a regex on the breadcrumb for any HTML, and takes the outermost HTML element and adds the RDF property to it, and if it's a link element, it adds the rel='v:url' property to it as well.

This is what I get as a result of the patch:

Actually this is the right patch, the first didn't accomodate tags that didn't have a space in them (no attributes on the tag).

Patch looks good from here, the acid test will be running with other breadcrumb modifying modules, there is one bug report here : #1910758: Breadcrumbs displaying attributes of the link in the middle of the trail: bug or configuration?

I installed Crumbs and ran it, seems to not be affected like the bug report (after applying this patch), however I am the first one to admit I have no idea what this module is supposed to be doing, the config seems about as intuitive as Windows 8 :/

Looks like I commited this along with updates for the menu toggle (total rewrite), so will call this fixed for now :)
