landing on incorrect page after clicking a link in notification in an email

Bug Description

A user sends a message to another user. The recipient gets an email, saying that 'you have received a view this message click here etc...'

Upon clicking the link in the email, the next screen presented will be the 'Write a message to ...screen' and not the message that was sent.

Clarification: This only happens if the recipient is not logged into Mahara. Then, he/she will be presented with the login screen and upon logging in the 'Write a message to ...screen' will appear

This is caused by running special chars encoding over the string which is already encoded. Original URI is used as action in loginform if user is not logged in at the time of clicking on the link in email. When $action is formed, ampersands are hard-coded as "&" (auth_get_login_form(), auth/lib.php), then at the form generation action string is passed through Peiform::hsc (get_form_tag()), so as result we have:

loginbox.innerHTML = '<form class="pieform" name="login" method="post" action="?id=2&amp;amp;replyto=1204&amp;amp;returnto=inbox" ...
