Hi there,

Could you please review a fix for:
8081787 [macosx] MalformedURLException is thrown during reading data for 
application/x-java-url;class=java.net.URL flavor


Mac Os X pasteboard returns a property list that consists of one URL, 
but our code supposes to get pure URL. I added extracting URL before passing
text to URL ctor.

I'm not sure how to implement a test for the fix, to test it properly we 
need a particular content in pasteboard, I don't know how to get this
without manual coping it.
