Here's an example:

Search Google for some functional programming terminology:

Search Terms: "Catamorphism Anamorphism Hylomorphism Paramorphism"

Search URL resulting from submitting those search terms:

<http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=Catamorphism+Anamorphism+Hylomorphi
sm+Paramorphism&btnG=Google+Search&fp=jdOYMfF-0fs>

From here I get a similar link, but pointing to google.co.uk.

First hit copied from browser window:

<Snip>

URL displayed by browser when mousing over link of first hit before
clicking:

<http://splonderzoek.blogspot.com/2009/04/latest-on-incremental-
fold-and.html>

That's what I see as well.

URL in clipboard (and browser URL feedback area) after using browsers'
Copy Link Location on that link:

<http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2
Fsplonderzoek.blogspot.com%2F2009%2F04%2Flatest-on-incremental-fold-

omorphism+Paramorphism&usg=AFQjCNFtCb0gtAYCKDT5hVs3pHbK5Vn7lQ>

Now this is different. With the .co.uk site I get the same link in the
clipboard as was originally shown in the results, rather than this
monstrosity.

However, repeating the same steps using google.com results in the above
link being copied into the clipboard. It looks like the change is made
as soon as a mouse button is clicked.
