databrowse does not filter URL fields properly

When trying to filter results by a field that contains a URL, the link generated by databrowse is invalid.

For example, I have a visit tracking application, and each visit has a referrer URLField.
So when I go to I see a list of all the different values for referrer (so far so good).
But when I click on one of them such as, the browser goes to (notice the double slash at the end) instead of the expected{{ the referrer URL }}/

Added a preliminary patch. The Admin site uses a custom quote function to ensure that URL parts don't get unencoded at the wrong time on various hosting solutions or browsers. I borrowed the quote/unquote functions from admin and are slotting them into databrowse in places where text fields are slotted into URL segments.
