theres a 'set markers' that defaults to yes. I edited it to no
and, presto, no mo' '+' in the url strings. ---how you ever
remembered the variable 'markers' is beyound me, but yup.
anyway, with my konsole at std size, ~37x80, I moused dead-on
the http string. same as before: the string showed up from the
'http://.....' to the eol. and when I clicked, I got garbage.
wait, there's more. I blew up the konsole until it filled the
entire screen. [i did this once before and got the right page.]
it still worked. no '+' line break, but still.
it's a bear to have to enlage the xterm/konsole just to read
some mail, but it works with the two embedded urls that I've tried
so far. why? dunno.
