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|J%C3%A9r%C3%B4meDuprez], converted as {{{http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/J%C3%A9r%C3%B4meDuprez}}}), which does not exist
* whereas it is OK if I write it down in the URL {{{http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/JérômeDuprez}}}, which gets rewritten as {{{http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/J%E9r%F4meDuprez}}}

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.

Works perfectly on Tomcat 5.5.16 on OSX...  It's probably a configuration, not an engine issue...
