 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:  2.4 (next)                  
Component:  General   |     Version:                              
 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:  comment login redirect error
 When a directory in the path to wordpress contains an unusual character,
 such as +, the redirect after a visitor logs in to post a comment strips
 that character out of the path name, so user ends up at the 404 not found

 to reproduce the error:
 1. make the directory for wordpress contain a + character, and set
 wordpress to require visitors to register in order to post comments.:
 2. go to post a comment (you must be logged out first).
 3. after entering username and password, the page is redirected to
 www.site.com/testfolder/?p=xx (the + is stripped).

 i believe i resolved the error on my site by correcting the regular
 expression in wp_redirect() in the file wp-includes/pluggable.php.

 a diff is attached to this post.
