Noticed that if the target url field in ad_info table contains a percent sign
character then the ad_info table parsing apparently stops on that line
in ad_info. It seems the percent sign is being parsed during a sprintf() call.

Immediate work-around: Don't allow percent signs in ad_info file.

Will require a close debug of ad_info parsing code to see where things go wrong.
