Embedding Google Form link in an MS Word document

Embedding a Google Form link in a MS Word document results in a shibboleth error.

This can be replicated by doing the following:

1. Create a Word document
2. Paste a Google Forms link into the document
3. Click on the link in the Word document

Users will get the error message on the page There is currently no known workaround for resolving this issue.

NOTE: This error does NOT occur if the link is embedded in an Open Office document or a Google Doc, or if the link is sent out via email or placed on a web page -- so the issue is likely occurring with MS Word.
