#372 Performance fix for Clickable links in v6.0+

Don HO

This patch changes the range that clickable links are searched for to just the visible window, which massively boosts performance with large files.

Patch can be applied with the patch.exe from http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/, (under Windows Vista/7, renamed so it does not contain "patch" in the name)

c:\utils\paXtch.exe -p 1 -i c:\path\to\patch\0001-Fix-for-clickable-links-in-big-documents.patch

Patch made against revision 909

    Added a second patch to fix an small issue when collapsing all folds, then opening a lower fold - URLs would not be highlighted inside this lower fold when it was expanded.

    The zip file (ClickableLinksPatch1.1.zip) contains both patches, and both can be applied as in the description text.

    After upgraded to the latest version (Notepad++ 6.1.3). 'Clickable links' only works in some of my saved text files, while creating a new file, copy and paste a link with http:// can't make it clickable.

    I'm sure I have enabled 'Clickable links' in MISC. setting.

    Could it be due to the latest enhancement and fixed bugs of 6.1.3?
    1. Enhance the performance issue for xml matching tags highlighting and for displaying clickable links.

    Been searching around for solution but couldn't find any cure. Revert back to Notepad++ 6.1.2

    Please help.
