Question Pagination locked when following email link back to forum

Hi there

Since upgrading to Kunena 5.0.2, I have found a bug with links generated by notification emails.
Some of the notification emails DO work, because they have the correct URL address.
Other notifications DON'T work, because they have different strings at end of URL.

This bug is only present in forum threads that have more than one page of results.

I receive copies of all forum traffic via email, on TWO different email accounts.
Some of the URLs in emails addressed to MASTER Forum email address, DO work.
All of the URLs in emails being addressed to Members, have links that break pagination from working.

Here is example from my forum.
Good link:
If I press Page 1 button, I am sent to page 1.
After pressing Page 1, URL updates to:

Bad link
If I press Page 1 button, page does not move. Cannot move through different pages in forum thread.
Aftering pressing Page 1, URL updates to:
But page does not actually change.

Kunena version 5.0.2
Joomla version 3.6.3
PHP 7.0.7

Thank you 810 for your reply.
I did what you said and experienced varying results, that were not consistent.
I decided to take my forum offline and do a clean install of Kunena 5. After doing this, some other problems I use to have were suddenly not there. I then copied the folders a 2nd time and now get consistent results, although there is one problem left now. I don't know if this is intentional or not?

In some email notifications, the # is missing before number in the URL link that is seen.
However, in all these situations, the URL linked to READ MORE button, does have the # before number. Which means READ MORE always works if pressed, but naked URL only sometimes works. It depends on who the email is for. It seems like Moderator and Admin notifications are the ones missing the # ?
