It is most likely that there is a view name with invalid characters. Look in the etc/apps/< app >/default|local/data/ui for file names with space, ~ etc. For example: Copy of Accounts.xml

ie:
Link to Result: Blablabla

But when trying to follow the link, it gives the InvalidURLException: Illegal characters in URL error..
