[Seaside] Accent encoding problem with seaside and scriptaculous

   I spent two hours yesterday to figure that out.
   I have a form with an ajax button (scriptaculous) which trigger the 
form when clicked. But if I have some accented or special characters 
in the input fields of the from, they are stored with errors.
   At first I tought it was 
HTTPRequest>>decodeUrlEncodedForm:multipleValues: and 
String>>unescapePercents which were broken. Then that it's the 
scriptaculous script which is guilty.
   This bug is pretty obvious to test, at least on my squeak 
(seaside2.6b1-mb.127 Scriptaculous-lr.162) : juste use the form part 
of the scriptaculous example. If you input 'forêt' you get a
forêt in seaside. The POST variable value transmitted to seaside is 
'for%C3%AAt'. But the URL-encode value for the character 'ê' should be 
   But I tried this example on scriptaculous.seasidehosting.st, and it 
is displayed well with the same post value. So the guilty should be 
seaside or Kom.
   Anyone as an idea how to make seaside understand the percented 
values the way it should ?
