Great, you found my cookbook! :)
There is a small typo, the "/" should be "."; the correct URL is:

In that case, I think you've hit a bug in my stylesheet(s). I will look
into the issue and come back to you later.

Well, a permalink is a constant string which is immune to reordering or
restructuring of your document.

With the "use.id.as.filename" parameter you can create stable filenames
as well.

I'm not aware of any better approach.
