You don't say what Koha version you're using, so I'll assume that
you're using the latest stable version (Koha 3.0.5).

I think your problem is related to a bug that has been introduced in
January of this year (2010) and that has been discussed in the
following Koha Mailing List thread:

Incorrect search links in biblio displays

If you read that discussion, you'll notice, at the end, that a bug has
been reported (as Bug 4074) and there's a patch already submitted for

Bug 4074 – The 'Subject(s)' link(s) are malformed resulting in no search results

So, I guess this problem will appear fixed in the next Koha versions
(3.0.6 and 3.2.0).

I hope this helps!
