Non latin or non-ASCII7bits characters in certain links are incorrectly escaped by the latest 2.4 engine.

For example, my user page JérômeDuprez is unreachable through a link:

  • the link points to JÃRÃ Me Duprez, converted as, which does not exist
  • whereas it is OK if I write it down in the URLérômeDuprez, which gets rewritten as

I spotted the problem with the accented characters in my name, but it also surfaces with asian characters, and presumably lots of non-7bits-ASCII characters. That's why I dare to increase the severity.
