 - observe that clicking won't work because only "http://" is
 - move mouse approximately to start of link
 - carefully position mouse pointer to the left of the 'h',
   on the right-hand half of the preceding space
 - visually check that mouse pointer is a text selection cursor
   and not a hand cursor
 - click and drag to highlight all four lines of the wrapped URL
 - press Ctrl-C
 - move mouse to web browser window and click
 - press Ctrl-T (new tab)
 - press Ctrl-V
 - visually check that URL didn't get mangled. Since it isn't
   fully visible in the address bar, this check requires:
     click, pause, click-drag to end, scan for mangling,
     click, pause, click-drag to front, scan for mangling,
     click to unselect.
   (Maybe this is more clicks than necessary, but it's what I
   actually did. The pauses are a habit to avoid Windows'
   horrible double-click behaviour in text fields.)
 - URL was not mangled. Press Enter.

Phew. That should have been:
 - observe that full URL is highlighted
 - move mouse pointer to URL and click.
