For a very long while now, several years actually, I've been a bit annoyed by the behaviour of terminals under X when you doubleclick links. What the UI considers a word is selected. Selection 'starts' at the point that is doubleclicked and 'spreads' in each direction, stopping at a char it considers to be a word delimiter. A space is probably always considered a delimiter. Sometimes a '?' too, and often ',' as well.
