Button links do not update in Outlook

The new button tool inserts two links into the raw HTML of your email: one for Microsoft Outlook, and one for all other email providers. If I edit the link after creating the button, the Outlook link doesn't update to the new URL.

For example, if I create a button that links to www.google.com, but then I change the link to www.facebook.com, everyone in Outlook will still be redirected to Google because the source code remains as follows:

<div class="nb-tmce-btn"><!--[if mso]><v:roundrect xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:w="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word" href="www.google.com" style="height:40px;v-text-anchor:middle;width:200px;" arcsize="10%" strokecolor="#ffffff" fillcolor="#303030"><w:anchorlock/><center style="color:#ffffff;font-family:sans-serif;font-size:13px;font-weight:bold;">Google</center></v:roundrect><![endif]--><a style="background-color: #303030; border: 1px solid; border-color: #ffffff; border-radius: 4px; color: #ffffff; display: inline-block; font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-weight: bold; line-height: 40px; text-align: center; text-decoration: none; width: 200px; -webkit-text-size-adjust: none; mso-hide: all; height: 40px;" href="http://www.facebook.com">Google</a></div>


This means that many of my Outlook supporters received the wrong link in their email.
