Now, it could be an issue with this specific tag, but I've found in recent days that switching from the full site to the mobile site while viewing 'questions tagged with c#' results in viewing 'questions tagged with c' instead. Is this happening for anyone else?

This is still happening? How many times must we tell devs that C# != C. Its not like they programmed the website in C# or anything... – Richard J. Ross III May 9 '13 at 23:56
Also reproduced with c#-4.0, c#-3.0, and c#-2.0. Same behavior. Switching to mobile changes to filtered tag to c, switching back to full site leaves the filtered tag as c – psubsee2003 May 10 '13 at 0:02
And I also tried c# and xml on the full site, switched to the mobile site and was left with c filtered. – psubsee2003 May 10 '13 at 0:11
Seems like it's an issue with the hash sign, then. The redirect gets confused by it and chops off everything after and including that hash, so we always end up with c? – Adrian May 10 '13 at 0:24
Just tested it with j# and visualj#, and it ended up trying to find questions tagged 'j' and 'visualj'. It does seem to be that hash sign that's the culprit. – Adrian May 10 '13 at 0:27
@RichardJRossIII it's not like is the same as! Oh wait, it is. – Cole Johnson May 10 '13 at 20:32

This will be fixed in the next deploy.

Root cause was HttpRequestBase.Url really not wanting to keep # in a trailing position, regardless of whether it was encoded or not.
