The page contains a url with an embedded newline, which is a bug fixed
in 2.8.5dev.4 (and should have been in the bugfixes under the 2.8.4 release
page - I've a few of those to put together for a third bugfix patch):

Menu</FONT></B></A> (20 minutes)
<P></P><A HREF="/cgi-bin/SCMMOS/GetRestaurant.cgi?AMICISD
SIZE="+1" COLOR="#FF0000">Delivery Menu</FONT></B></A>

The changelog entry for the fix:

* modify LYLegitimizeHREF() change from 2.8.4dev.21 to eliminate newlines from
  the HREF rather than converting them to spaces.  This fixes a problem with which splits up HREFs with newlines.  Changing the newlines to
  spaces made the HREF no longer match, e.g., when it was built up from
  a CGI script (report by Morten Bo Johansen) -TD
