hovering over a link shows the URL in the status bar. currently, long URLs
get truncated at the end. This should be changed so that the URL gets truncated
in the middle, thus showing the information that is usually most relevant.

patch, set the crop in setOverLink

neil pointed out that the check can be done in setOverLink, so that it needs
not be done for every status change.
