Long url strings like this are generated when you do a an [area scan...], 
[area form...] or a similar one click search.  The alternative would be a 
form-based search using input fields and form tags with the [area ...] or 
[process ...] action - these types of submissions return an url which 
simply ends with "process" or something similiar. With a little javascript 
you might even be able to simulate a one-click search (the following has 
not been tested):

<form action="[process-target]" method=post>
<input type=hidden name=mv_todo value=search>
<input type=hidden name=mv_search_field value=a_field_name>
<input type=hidden name=mv_matchlimit value=50>
<input type=hidden name=mv_searchspec value="look for me">
<a href="javascript:void 0" onClick="this.form.submit()">Search</a>
