It seems that if there are several URLs in an inline code block, only the first one is not "linkified":

http://stackoverflow.com/ http://superuser.com/ http://serverfault.com/

There are two spaces between each URL. If I put only one space between each, only the middle one is linked:

http://stackoverflow.com/ http://superuser.com/ http://serverfault.com/

Update: Maybe someone is wondering why I just don't format such lines as block code. I often mark URLs as inline code so that they get not highlighted as comments which makes them easier to read then. I assume I could use one of the language hint <!-- lang --> comments, but formatting as inline code is quicker ;)

    @John: I'm talking about situations where URLs are examples, like as input for regular expressions. Often, these URLs are not valid anyway, like one.two.three.something (http://one.two.three.something)... linking them does not make sense. This was the question where I discovered this – Felix Oct 21 '11 at 6:20

Fixed on both sides of the fence (next build). Thanks!
