Problem

1)

http://wayback.archive.org/web/20110615000000*/libgd.org/Documentation

When simply pasted in question or comments, this URL keeps just the first part linked ( http://wayback.archive.org/web/20110615000000*/libgd.org/Documentation )

2)

http://wayback.archive.org/web/20110615000000*/http://libgd.org/Documentation

When simply pasted, this URL

But * is a valid URL character ( Which characters make a URL invalid? )

Workarounds

There is a workaround to adding such URL in question - just use the toolbar button in the question context box. "Go here"

In comments, the quick help box contains details on the syntax (it works).

The bug

This enquiry relates to the feature of making hyperlinks automatically just when URLs are pasted.
