Try the attached patch against v3.17, it passes the attached test script. The patch does essentially the following: In both url() and _name_and_path_from_env(), REQUEST_URI is now unescaped before any comparisons with unescaped URIs/paths are performed on it (per the CGI spec, PATH_INFO and SCRIPT_NAME are always URL-unescaped). As a side effect, the local URL-escaping of $path_info_search in _name_and_path_from_env() is now unnecessary. The patch also reduces a redundant if-match-then-substitute in _name_and_path_from_env() to a simple substitute, which is equivalent. Julian.
