ACT 2012 Premium - Strange link behavior in history tab

We're in the middle of testing ACT 2012 Premium and have noticed that all shortcut links in the history tab are being transformed making them unreadable.

When you attach a shortcut in the history tab, all spaces in the filename are transformed to %20 - for example: we have a folder called "2011 Documents". A link to a file inside this folder will become: E:\2011%20Documents\invoice%20Sage.pdf

Only new links (ACT2012) have this behavior. The old once are just fine.

This only occurs in the history tab - documents tab is worrking fine.

So do the links work or do they error as this was a default for many web based systems

Links are working, but it's not nice to look at.

The %20 are space fillers. Name your files without spaces and you wont see the space fillers.

Is there any add-on (or process/procedure) to remove the %20's from the Regarding line of the Histories?
