Symptoms

WebCenter Portal Navigation using getGoLinkPrettyUrl is broken after applying <Patch 16467216>.
Before the patch this worked fine.
 
 
For example, this call used to return the correct path to navigate to a node in the navigation:

goLinkUrl = subNode.getGoLinkPrettyUrl()

 
After the patch the above API returns the same value for all nodes in the navigation. 

Here is an example:
 
Before the patch subNode.getGoLinkPrettyUrl() returned this for a given node in the navigation:

/faces/Petros/Page1/Page11?_adf.ctrl-state=3dnbk87wa_4

 
After the patch all nodes in the navigation return the same thing as follows:
 

/faces/Petros/home?_adf.ctrl-state=1bpp0yrf1o_4
