malformed client side requests / broken url are seen in web pages served by JBoss

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

We are experiencing random and odd malformed client side requests.

Here is an example:

href="http://www.oursite.com/shop/cU%20Items%3C/a%3E%3Ca%20href="

Note the addition at the end of another partial link tag.
These requests get passed on by Apache (running on RHEL) to JBoss and return a 404 in the JBoss server access logs.
