I think you'll find that "failure" is by design.  Passing this 
information as part of the url would be done in plain text and therefore 
allows for some security issues that were closed up about 12-18 months

all the details, but  I do recall the matter coming up at the office and 
we had to stop pushing links to people with that type of format.
