Editor: The link dialog should insert http:// if user doesn't type it

The link dialog used to prepend http:// when the user didn't type it. For example, if the user typed "", it would convert it to "".

This is a regression, since it worked in 1.4. See:

You need to end the input with a /<optional file> for it to append http.

It needs the cues to know if it should append or not., etc could also just be references to local files on your system. There is no cue that it's really a hostname/url link.

That's how it has always worked (1.4+). It will try to guess whether it is a local file ref or url, but to do so it needs the cue of the /.

Not a regression.
