 Hello folks. I've run into a really weird problem with WordPress. It seems
 that it cannot recognise a page slug, if there are more than 61 characters
 after the question mark ('?') in in the URL.

 For example, I have a page at this location:


 This page deterministically displays content depending on what information
 is fed to it via the URL (GET). I get a 404 error when attempting to go to
 this address:


 However, if I trim the URL back by one character at a time and refresh the
 browser, this URL will work (with reduced page funcionality because of
 fewer variables):


 As you can see in this example, WordPress seems to only be able to
 buffer/ignore the first 61 characters after the question mark ('?').

 So, this leads to several questions. Does anyone know if this is a
 reported bug? I tried to report it, but for some reason I couldn't get
 into the bug-reporting system. :( Also, where in the wordpress files is
 this situation handled (variables passed via GET to slugged pages)? I'm
 pretty good with code, so I could probably fix it myself, if I knew where
 the fix'n needs to be done. :)
