I'm using the current trunk (rev 15704) of ConfirmEdit.php with MediaWiki 1.8.2. With this configuration, ConfirmEdit does not detect 
HTTP links, allowing spammers to bypass the CAPTCHA. Asheesh Laroia's patch fixes this problem:

Probably broken by some funky combination of autoloading and stub objects.
Enabling the Cite extension gets things working, damn if I know why. :P
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-12-15 10:08:57 UTC
Loading a parser hook extension causes $wgParser to be unstubbed early in
setup code, thus loading Parser.php. Mystery solved. :)

Fixed in r18349; the fix for bug 4823 to use the parser for proper link
extraction neatly moots this bug.
