pdfTeX supports links broken across lines.

Yes, dvips does not support broken links.
Option `breaklinks` of package `hyperref` cannot
magically invent the support, therefore the link
areas *are* broken. The option is only useful
for printing the document.

Package `breakurl` provides a workaround for
URL links with dvips, maybe it can help you
in this case.
