I don't know then. The only thing I can think of is that you have some
Japanese characters somewhere and it's breaking the URL. What is the
local encoding on your workstation and what encoding is the server? Are
they both Unicode?

Yeah, this is wrong. The server and share part should not be there. The
URL is getting messed up somewhere internally. At this point I can't
