    Is it possible to get rid of the '<' and '>' around the URL at the
    end of the issue tracker message ?

Those two characters are needed by some eMail apps to make them recognize URLs across line breaks correctly. Apple Mail is an example.

On the other hand we'd have to generate a *lot* of bugs before that line gets long enough to need any line-breaking.

To quote RFC2396 - Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax:

  The angle-bracket "<" and ">" and double-quote (") characters are
  excluded because they are often used as the delimiters around URI in
  text documents and protocol fields.
  delims      = "<" | ">" | "#" | "%" | <">

I'd like to keep it that way. Andy Hauser suggested to use cutchars for X:

URxvt*cutchars: \ `"'(),;<=>[]{|}
