...or too much something else :p

The fix is a specific case for your url.

It will not work properly with urls that actually use the query to pass
arguments values to the server. 
It would be interesting to know what the "real" client does in this case.
Do you have a test url, so I can sniff the network to see the requests?

It looks too specific to me to apply it without more investigation!
What do you think Ross?
