This is a known limitation.
All of the changes mentioned here only afffect the file mhtxtplain.pl

This allows query stings such as
which are currently broken off at the first ampersand.
And broke with what you have. "Htmlization" is done first before
URL detection, so '&' will actually become '&'. If you include
'&' in the expression, then you are actually generating an incorrect
link. ('&' was a horrible choice as an argument separator)
$str =~ s/A\ \ HREF/A HREF/g; # ADDED BY EMERY
Not good if "A HREF" is actual message data. Also, does
not deal with the case when the target option is specified.
I have code that does a better job with URL detection (and even handles
the <URL:...> notation with embedded newlines), but supporting
"keepspace" causes a problem.
