> In the last week or so, I've run into a couple of bugs in Swazoo that may be of interest to any Seasiders using Swazoo in their applications. I've got workarounds for GLASS if anyone is interested.
> The first bug is in SwazooURI where the query fields in an URL will be incorrectly parsed if an `&` or other special character is embedded in the value of the field. The following example illustrates the bug:
>  | url ans1 ans2 |
>  url := 'www.foo.com/index.html?foo=1&bar=', 'bar"sample method"^#($&)' encodeForHTTP
>  ans1 := SwazooURI fromString: url.
>  ans2 := SwazooURI new.
>  ans2 fromStream: url readStream.
>  ans1 printString = ans2 printString
> SwazooURI>>fromString: (called by SwazooURI class>>fromString:) prematurely decodes the input string exposing the `&` and causes the parser to think that there is an additional query field in the input url and results in the truncation of the value of the `bar` field. The fix is to remove the call to HTTPString class>>decodedHTTPFrom: from SwazooURI>>fromString: ... the subsequent parsing of the queryfields already call HTTPString class>>decodedHTTPFrom:
> This bug is present in Swazoo-2.3beta2.6

Nice catch. I attached a test for this.
