Parameters dropped from URL

I have some APEX applications that send emails to users. Some of these emails contain deep links back to the application.

Prior to upgrading to 4.2.3 these links worked properly.

After upgrading to 4.2.3 the links still work be the parameters are dropped.

For example, if the original link is:  http://tec-apex04:7777/pls/apex/f?p=140:10:2903726337254566::NO::P10_ID:4269

The page in the browser will display: http://tec-apex04:7777/pls/apex/f?p=140:10:2903726337254566.

So the page displayed but no data has been fetched so all the fields are blank

I am pretty sure this has something to do with the session id. I can actually see the full URL being displayed for a second and then the truncated one shows up.

Note that the URL that is in the email has a random session id. Also, the session id that is displayed in the browser once the parameters are dropped is a new, different one.

If I leave the browser open and click on the email link a second time, the browser opens a new tab and the parameters are retained. At this point the second tab uses the session id created on the first try.

Like I said, this used to work fine before. Has something changed in the new version to prevent me from doing this?

Thanks for your help!
