I'm getting referrals to my site from Yahoo! with links like these:

/index.php?path=stuff%E2%8A%82=extra

Which lead no where... They're supposed to be

/index.php?path=stuff&sub=extra

Anyone have an idea as to WHY Yahoo! is doing this?

You're best not letting the situation have the potential of happening in the first place. Do some mod_rewrite work to produce .html URLs (like this forum does).

Exactly - use mod_rewrite. This will also mean changes in your coding. If you are interrested I can help you with this - check out my SEO packages.

problem i have found is yahoo is indexing incomplete web addresses. and anybody clicking on the links directs them to my default error page instead of the page they said they indexed. and im using a mod_rewrite. msn and google index me fine. but yahoo seems to be having difficulty from time to time.
