Attachments with # (pound) in the filename are not handled correctly by TWiki. URLs generated for managing these attachments put the pound symbol (#) into the URL, causing the browser to truncate the filename and treat the rest of the URL as an anchor. The pound should be URL-encoded as %23.

Example URLs: http://servername/twiki/bin/attach/Someweb/SomePage?filename=ih_bif#1.doc&revInfo=1
