I found that it happens because styles system includes all bogus <br>s in applied inline element.

<p>[a<br>]</p>   ->   <p><b>a<br></b></p>
<p>[a<br></p><p><br></p><p>b]<br></p>   ->   <p><b>a<br></b></p><p><b><br></b></p><p><b>b</b><br></p>

If <br> is included in inline element, then there's no way to leave it. I found this in a comment for #7041 in fixDom function.

On the other hand including <br>s in styles make it possible to apply them in empty lines. It wouldn't be possible otherwise.

Still broken in FF 43.0 and CKEditor 4.5.6.

As suggested in comment above, this issue is caused because bogus <br> gets include inside inline element. For the test case from description, after typing text:


After pressing Ctrl+A, the selection looks like this:


Then the whole selection is wrapped into an 'a' element:

<p><a href="http://#" data-cke-saved-href="http://#">test<br></a></p>
