Description of problem:
When gnome-terminal detects a URL in the text it displays it will make it an
active link: when the mouse cursor is placed over such a link it will be
underlined and an "Open in Browser" link should be displayed in the right-click
Occasionally the latter doesn't happen: the link is underlined, but the "Open in
Browser" menu item is not added to the menu. It may take a couple of
right-clicks to get it to appear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Display some text with a URL in it
2.Right click on the URL
3.If the context menu contains "Open in browser", move the mouse away and repeat
from step 2
Actual Results: The "Open in Browser" link does not appear
Expected Results: The last item in the context menu should be "Open in Browser"
This can be frustrating, if you don't stop to look you can end up clearing your
terminal buffer instead of opening the link!

The code involved here is totally replaced in Rawhide, so assuming it has
different bugs. Reopen if not.
