The link it tried to follow is not a valid URL. xoxo, Andy -- Andy Lester => andy@petdance.com => www.petdance.com => AIM:petdance

I disagree. The above link is an URL, otherwise URI.pm would made a URI::_generic object of it, not a URI::mailto object. But of course it is not clear what should happen if one does not follow a "browseable" link. Maybe the error message should be friendlier, e.g. checking for $uri->can("host") first and warn the user?
