Long links break the click tracker

See examples on our staging server. Clicking on the link normally causes a white screen, opening in a new tab works fine.

Post the link here. Try is reimaged every day so nothing there has any permanence other than the built in topics.

Definitely a bug, @eviltrout. Of course that link could charitably be called “from hell”

Indeed, on our instance it Oneboxes to hide the nasty URL.

Here’s a fix for this one:
