In that case I think that it's a different problem than what I

This is weird.  To debug it, the text thing I'd do is make that
/Applications/hello.html show the location string -- perhaps the browser
hides the query part.  Another thing to look into is the permissions of
the files -- maybe it descides to drop the query bit on a file that you
don't personally own.

It shouldn't be `open' -- it's something with osascript.  (I don't
remember it now, but Robby had it in the other email.)

Should be something like

    (send-url/file "/Some/file.html" #:query "123")

but it's probably won't help to try it, since it uses the same
functionality as the above.
