Never mind clicking. What do you get if you manually type or paste in the URL?
Can't say anything about 101- but the URL with ?start=1 is bad news. It means that someone, somewhere, has linked to your page in this form. And, since static html pages by default simply ignore parameters, you are now on a slippery slope. Google can append any old garbage to an URL in .html, and they'll get a page.
In wmt, go next door to the parameters area. If your site uses static html, you may never have set foot there. But you should now see "start" listed as a parameter. Choose the "ignore" option. Careful! You want the one that says "ignore this parameter", NOT the one that says "ignore all urls containing this parameter". I'm throwing out these labels from memory; someone may want to chip in with the exact wording.
With luck, this will be enough to shut google up. If not, you may need to go to Option B: Redirects you never need until you need them. This one involves grabbing any request that contains more stuff after ".html"-- here it's a parameter, but it could also be a directory slash. Forcibly redirect to the version that ends cleanly at .html. Exact wording will depend on whether you're on Apache or That Other Server, and whether it's your own server or shared hosting.
