[OS X TeX] A \url problem

I've simplified my \url problem as much as possible. Here a simple TeX  
script that illustrates the problem. I am attaching the TeXShop/LaTeX  
PDF output (if attachments can make it to this list).

### begin source ###
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

\documentclass[12pt, letterpaper]{article}

\geometry{letterpaper, nohead,
    hmargin={1.5in, 1.5in}, vmargin={1.5in, 1.0in},
\setlength{\parskip}{2.0ex plus0.5ex minus0.2ex}


This URL splits
but both parts take you where you are supposed to go.

I'd like to put the URL below this statement, but indented a bit.
Unfortunately the URL splits in an ugly way, and it no longer works
properly. The top goes nowhere; only the ``cvs'' part takes you where
you are supposed to go.\\

I'd really like to indent the URL like this.\\
This looks right, but clicking on the top part doesn't work. Curiously,
clicking just to the right of the top part will take you to the right  
and the bottom part works the way it is supposed to.

What is the problem here? What am I missing?

Thanks for any advice you can give me.
