I was about to edit an answer to fix url syntax, but noticed that it was correct. Preview thinks it is correct, but there's no ref in the answer. The answer I was going to edit is http://stackoverflow.com/a/4262450/1045994

That's because this answer was posted before I made this change, and so its HTML was still created under the old rules, where a URL directly following an opening parenthesis would not be auto-linked. I have made a non-edit to the answer (just added a newline) to force re-rendering the answer with the new rules, and now the URLs are links.
