Comma directly after an URL gets added to the URL, making websites break when you click on it
Well, the entire bug is written in the subject actually :p. When somebody places an URL in an chat and he adds a comma directly after it, Quassel adds the comma to the URL, making a lot of websites break. I noticed this when the following happened:
[14:26:12] <user> #imdb 0066580
[14:26:14] <channelBot> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066580, Woodstock (1970), 7.8/6084 votes
Quassel created a link to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066580, making IMDB report that the page doesn't exists.
If this could be escaped in some way, it would be great.
I've tested this with Quassel 0.5.1, not 0.5.0 as I selected below, but the option 0.5.1 wasn't added there and 0.5.0 was the closed right choice ;)

According to RFC1738 a comma can be part of a URL, even unencoded. So the bug is in your channelBot, not in Quassel.
That said, I've come around the same issue with other chatbots -- therefore it might be nice for Quassel to have the characters configurable that are recognized as URLs.
So, this isn't a bug. It's merely a feature request.
