Hgweb (the Mercurial equivalent of gitweb) has the same problem. I
have the impression that the semicolons in the URLs are initially not
escaped correctly or something. Both hgweb and gitweb use semicolons
in the URL; hgweb shows "no such method: changeset;node=69b90bdd52d1"
when following such a "...?cmd=changeset;node=69b90bdd52d1" link from
GMail (using Chrome, in case that matters).

Workaround: When I press enter on the URL in the address bar while the
404 is showing, the page reloads correctly without 404-ing.
