Description C de-Avillez 2009-02-08 22:54:02 UTC
For example:

$ echo http://test.url/thisHasADot.

The traling dot is included in the URL, causing 404s.

This did not happen on 2.22.

Comment 1 C de-Avillez 2009-02-08 23:07:44 UTC
Correction: this did not happen in gnome-terminal 2.24.1.
Comment 2 Christian Persch 2009-03-02 17:44:59 UTC
Dots are valid in URIs, so why exactly should they be excluded from the matching?
Comment 3 C de-Avillez 2009-03-18 22:56:16 UTC
Although dots are valid in URIs, it is extremely uncommon to have URIs terminated in a dot (like "", as opposed to "").

It is this termination dot that causes the problems.
Comment 4 C de-Avillez 2009-03-26 14:17:36 UTC
By the way, it is interesting to note that b.g.o. itself does not underline the trailing dot.
Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2009-03-26 16:09:36 UTC
Can't reproduce.  Is this still happening?
