Default OneNote creates incomplete hyperlink address from pasted URL

When I paste a URL to a OneNote page, the resulting hyperlink address is often incomplete:

  1. Copy a URL to the clipboard - as text only, for example

  2. Paste it to the body of a OneNote page.
Result: OneNote turns only part of the text into a link (blue, underlined). The text is complete, but the hyperlink address is incomplete.
The last n characters are missing from the hyperlink address - where n depends from the pasted text.
For example, with the URL above always the last 2 characters are missing from the hyperlink address that OneNote creates:

Of course the hyperlink does not work due to its incomplete address.
In order to make such hyperlinks work I must edit each hyperlink address, which is cumbersome.

(I never encounter this issue with Word, Excel, Outlook or Powerpoint.)

This issue is strictly reproducible on several computers on
  • OneNote 2013 on Windows 7
  • OneNote 2010 on Windows 8
How to make OneNote create the hyperlink with the complete address always?
