Hello! I encoutered a problem using MM 2012 (10.1.459) for Windows (Win7 x64) with custom URL schemes, which are registered by some applications.

The easiest example to reproduce the problem is Skype, which registers "callto:" URL scheme:
1. Create a new blank map on a PC which has Skype installed.
2. Add the hyperlink "callto:test" to the central topic. The Skype icon appears next to the topic, clicking it will launch Skype and call "test" contact.
3. Now save this map in "c:\temp\" folder. The URL changes to "..\docs\callto:test" (in my case the working folder for MM was "c:\docs") and is no longer functional.

The same happens when I "save as" an existing map to a new location.
