Can you please provide examples to support the claim?
These work for me:
"http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Science--Study and teaching"
(Escaped: http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Science--Study%20and%20teaching )
NB: The "t" in teaching is lowercase.
"http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Study and teaching"
( Escaped: http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Study%20and%20teaching )
"http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Popper, Karl R. (Karl Raimund), 1902-1994"
( Escaped: http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/Popper%2C%20Karl%20R.%20(Karl%20Raimund)%2C%201902-1994 )
Some of labels above were taken from your email; some were taken from the URL you shared.
