Link dialogue - Step 1

Version r61605

Steps to reproduce:

1) Click link dialogue 
2) Start typing a sample wikipedia article name
3) Select an suggested article
4) Switch the radio button from wiki to external web page

1) Link status does not change
2) Adds http:// and insert into an article
3) The link destination is different from initial intention

Proposed solution:
Not sure what would be a good way to warn a user, but at least we need to
inform a user that the link now takes him/her to unintended URL.
