Sorry, I missed that.

I just checked the TCA:
$TCA['tt_content']['columns']['bodytext']['config']['softref'] = 

In the RTE of a text content element I entered the same URL as in your 
post and it generated:
<div class="span12"><p class="bodytext"><a 
href="http://www.norealwebsite.nl/" title="Opens external link in new 
window" target="_blank" class="external-link-new-window">Broken

On the Report tab it shows:

Listing of broken links
Path 	Element 	Link 	URL / Link Target 	Error message 	Last check 	
/Home/Development/Translate test/ 	Broken link (Field: Text) 	Broken 
link 	http://www.norealwebsite.nl/ 	Exception: Unable to connect to 
tcp://www.norealwebsite.nl:80. Error: php_network_getaddresses: 
getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. 	15-03-15 22:31 	

At the moment I can't reproduce the issue.
