This is probably due to the same bug if FOP that prevents it from wrapping urls
in footnotes and screens.

I suggest we remove the extra link since almost all PDF viewers have a "copy
url" option on the right mouse button menu; so there is really no need to have
the url in plain text.

This would require setting ulink.show to zero in main-pdf.xsl

Alternately you could force the text URL to be generated in a footnote instead
of in the table by setting ulink.footnotes to 1 in main-pdf.xsl

Alternately we could try restructuring the fo output to find a structure FOP is
happy with. This would take a fair while to get around to.

I forced the urls to be in foot notes, this not only fixes this issue, it makes
the text more readable.
