I found something. I forgot to mention that I'm running Gnome and I'm 
suspecting some issues there (KDE app on Gnome). 

If I copy from Firefox (GTK app) and paste the URL into Kmail (QT app) I see 
this behavior (hard wraps it).  I now tried copying from K3B (some long 
string I typed on one of the config widgets) and when I paste that into Kmail 
it works perfectly (it doesn't wraps it).

At least now I know it's some inter-desktop-environment issue. If anyone knows 
a way around this please let me know.  I'll update the thread if I find
