[OS X TeX] A \url problem

I am having a \url problem (with TeXShop/LaTeX) that is driving me  
crazy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My problem can be illustrated with two parboxes, each containing the  
same URL.



The first parbox typesets the URL on one line. Clicking on this line  
opens a browser and displays the desired URL.

The second parbox typesets the URL on two lines:
Both lines are colored to indicate an active link, and the cursor  
changes to a pointing finger when it is over either line. However,  
when you hold the cursor over the first line, you see that it is  
pointing at the directory
which (on clicking the line) will not allow itself to be listed. The  
second line
points nowhere and goes nowhere, even though appears to be a link.

I can't figure out what the problem is here. There are broken URLs in  
my bibliography that work fine, but the 5-inch parbox one doesn't work  
at all.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
