In this particular case, this is a problem of the fontification engine.
It shouldn't fontify Org elements in a src block, or any other verbatim
context. More precisely, `org-activate-links' does not check if match is
within such a context.

Ideally, fontification should use the parser, which doesn't fail in this
case. This is on my long TODO list; unfortunately, it has no NEXT
keyword yet.
