Avoid Ext_Link Module Stripping URL ?

I'm using the ext_link_page module to redirect visitors to an ext_link page, letting them know they're exiting the site. It works fine.

URL looks like this:   ?q=ext_link&url=http://www.yahoo.com    (if they're being redirected to Yahoo)

But some links get stripped.

Example:  ?q=ext_link&url=http://www.allforgood.org/search#q=category%3Adisaster

is being stripped to http://www.allforgood.org/search

How to resolve?

It appears there is a flaw in the module that doesn't escape the pound sign. Basically, the server interprets the pound(#) sign as a separate variable. The module would have to work around that somehow, but it doesn't seem to do it. You can try updating to the dev version of the module to see if they've fixed that issue. You can also try the External Links Extra module to see if it would work instead.
