#1144 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

REQUEST_URI may be encoded but PATH_INFO, get_option('home') are not

Reported by: lev Owned by: ryan
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 1.5
Component: General Keywords: has-patch needs-testing

Say someone is using unix style home directories in the blog url, like http://www.example.com/~frank is the blog home page.

1.) Telnet into example.com port 80.
2.) Type in the http request "GET /~frank/ HTTP/1.0", hit enter twice after typing that in.
3.) The resulting web page that comes out on the screen has the navigation link to get to the next page look like "http://example.com/~frank/page/2/". This is fine.

4.) However, telnet back into example.com port 80.
5.) Type in this http request, "GET /%7Efrank/ HTTP/1.0", then hit enter twice.
6.) The resulting web page has a navigation link to get to the next page that looks like "http://example.com/~frank/%7Efrank/page/2/". This is a problem.
