Hyperlinks created in CS6 introduce extra characters

I've noticed that when I create hyperlinks in InDesign CS6 (v 8.0.1) it adds extra characters in the URL, thus breaking the link. For example [red highlights problem areas]...

 

Correct hyperlink typed into InDesign:

http://portfolio.epri.com/ProgramTab.aspx?sId=ENV&rId=220&pId=6931

 

InDesign renders the URL this way:

http://portfolio.epri.com/ProgramTab.aspx%3FsId%3DENV%26rId%3D220%26pId%3D6931


 

This happens on both a Mac and a pc. I never experienced this problem in earlier versions of InDesign.


I found an earlier discussion about this problem but it doesn't appear that Adobe has fixed it. A corrective script was offered by Laubender in that discussion. However, I create a lot of docs with a lot of links and would rather avoid that type of solution.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
