Have you loaded breakurl *after* hyperref, as the
documentation says? Otherwise, a LaTeX source file 
(as urged by others before)
obtained from your present larger one so it results 
in little more than a PDF with one of the broken links
could help to see why the breakurl package doesn't 
fulfill its only purpose in your case. I also wonder 
how exactly the references are produced, maybe a data 
base must be adjusted or an external sorting program 
must be run explicitly after switching to breakurl.sty.

One could also do breakurl.sty's work manually about as:

   \href{URL}{Apl,}\linebreak\href{URL}{752, L12}

(again a database problem ...)
