    I'm browsing the mobile version of this site on my G1, and every topic link gives me a very simple, text-only "Page not found" error. The new "hot threads" links on the main page work, but I tried to view threads in three different forums and every one gave me that same error.

    EDIT: Ha, even after I posted this I got the error, but I can view it from the Recent Threads list.

    This is the url I'm viewing now:

    This is the broken one:

    Why in the world would a reference to a named anchor cause a 404 error? I've determined that the error page I get is the Android Forums custom 404 page. I guess it's a bug in the site's url rerouting engine. But I was under the impression that links to named anchors ween't sent to the server, and the browser itself resolved them once the page loads.

    Update: a simple refresh on the 404 page makes it load. For a while I was deleting everything after and including the # in the url, but I noticed that when I pressed Back the page with the # would then load. Very weird.

    Oh look, it's happening again. It only happens when I'm on a wifi connection. Both times it happened at home. I should try a wifi connection somewhere else.

    If someone else wants to try, please do.
