Christian, it was news to me, too, so I tried to find some references.
Don't know how much of it is myth, but a quick google search with "search engine optimization urls parameters" gave lots of results:

The spider can be trapped in the web server - and therefore the spiders and bots are very careful not to enter the web site too deep.
  | Dynamic generated URL's with a large number of parameters "?&id=" can therefore cause problems for search engine bots. This is why we normally recommend to use a seo rewriting program to change dynamic URL's into Google-friendly URL's. This is always a good step to start with, when you hire a SEO company.
