The # in query parameters is a separate experiment that the search team was doing (AJAX based search results pages) that started some time back. It was discussed quite fervently in the Yahoo Web Analytics discussion group a few months ago. Random groups of people were/are assigned to be a part of the experiment, and that caused all the keyword data for that user to dissapear from every Analytics tool.

It looks like the experiment is still going on.
