I'm in desperate need for a fix to this. Linking directly to a resource (1.9.3) from MS-Word ends up taking the user to the main page, not to the resource. The URL works fine when pasted into the browser, but when inserted into Word as a hyperlink it doesn't. The user still gets the Moodle login screen, but when they log in they get the front page, not the resource being linked.
I've seen this in another thread or two but they don't seem to end in a definitive fix.
