Ah! I hadn't spotted the `%` → `%25` the first time. Yes, this would
actually be fine, and I think even expected as % is not a legal
character on its own in a URL (maybe?) given that it's used for escape
sequences. In fact, it works for Chrome. The problem is that `#` is a
special character with special meaning and for org/emacs to url-encode
it is a mistake.

Ah. I'm on an older org version:

`Org-mode version 7.9.3f (release_7.9.3f-17-g7524ef @

Perhaps that explains it.
