GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 571002
URL linking also selects trailing dot.
Last modified: 2009-03-26 18:51:25 UTC
$ echo http://test.url/thisHasADot.
The traling dot is included in the URL, causing 404s.
This did not happen on 2.22.
Original Ubuntu bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-terminal/+bug/326975
Correction: this did not happen in gnome-terminal 2.24.1.
Dots are valid in URIs, so why exactly should they be excluded from the matching?
Although dots are valid in URIs, it is extremely uncommon to have URIs terminated in a dot (like "http://place.com/stuff.", as opposed to "http://place.com/ustff.done").
It is this termination dot that causes the problems.
By the way, it is interesting to note that b.g.o. itself does not underline the trailing dot.
Can't reproduce. Is this still happening?

Yes. Did you try it on trunk?
Ok, I see. This was introduced by this patch:
