Special characters eg. back slash, forward slash, plus sign in username breaks Personal Space


      A user is pulling down usernames from an LDAP and these usernames contain backslashes. This is all fine and good until the user creates a personal space. They can create these and edit the home page (at the time of creation), but after saving the home page the personal space is no longer accessible.

      username: US\someguy
      personal space created at: wiki/display/~us%5Csomeguy
      trying to access the personal space fails as the browser is bounced to wiki/display/us\someguy

      This also breaks if the username contains a forward slash or a plus sign, and probably various other special characters.
