This must be a long-standing bug (since support for ? in squabs was introduced in Foswiki 1.1.0?) but it sucks..

I've made some attempts to fix this. This is one of those #^%@&^% double-(de)-re-encoding problems that I'm terrified of touching.

Let's fix this in 1.1.5.

Unit test fails if short URL's enabled. Change to expect failure.
