links are using a href="#" for various UI elements

the elements are using a href="#" as a link target. This might give problems when a window.location.hash is already used. Would be nice to change that link to: href="'+window.location.hash+'"

Please provide actual cases where this is a problem. The existence of <a href"#"> by itself is not a problem, since we prevent the default action of clicks.

We have an offline enabled single page application using the window.location.hash to provide a method to mimic querystring. Querystring is not possible for us, as most web browsers are trying to make web connections when dynamic url's are used.

When JQuery UI components link to # the rest of the "qureystring" is omitted rendering our pages useless. We now do a global replace on href="#" to href="'+window.location.hash+'" keeping the information intact.

I'm closing as invalid unless you can actually provide specific cases where this happens.
