Well, that is simple to fix: put the extension in the end.
Enterprise explorer uses an internal server, but that
doesn't mean that it's impossible to solve.

Using page.html-param=value&param2=value2.html or something
like that would solve the problem.

I can take a look, but there is a simpler way: in that
dialog that we can configure the filename format, add a new
variable (like %q = formatted query string). There is no big
deal in this, just get the old query string, replace one or
two illegal filename characters and it's done.

I think this would be a great feature.
