If you bother to check m_hitTestResult, you'll find out that it is an
instance of HitTestResult, which of course already stores hit test
result (surprised!). You can set a breakpoint in the HitTestResult
constructor to see who creates it (there are few places, from event
handling to selection logic). You can also have a look at
RenderLayer::hitTest() function.

You give up to early. Hint: m_innerURLElement's type is RefPtr<Element>.
