Added List View Parameters (?fcf=) Interfere with List View Visualforce Override

When using the suggested Visualforce override for List pages (see below), I kept getting an Inked error. I first checked the Visualforce permissions, and the user had permission for the page.

What we eventually concluded is that Salesforce is adding this parameter below…

?fcf=00B41000002VHu0 (list view ID)

…to the List view URL. Because Salesforce is adding its own ?, the ? in our Visualforce markup becomes unintelligible. By changing the ? to a &, we solved the problem.

Has anyone experienced this? Is this new? Have I missed it?

<apex:page standardController="Account" recordSetVar="a" extensions="skuid.Redirects" action="{!redirect}&amp;page=AccountTab"> </apex:page>

Which gave me this URL:
