Description Daniel Lo Nigro 2014-02-23 19:21:31 UTC
To reproduce (with ASP.NET MVC 4):

	name: "HelloWorld",
	url: "HelloWorld/{*path}",
	defaults: new { controller = "HelloWorld", action = "Index" }

public class HelloWorldController : Controller
	public ActionResult Index(string path)
		var url = Url.Action("Index", "HelloWorld", new { path = "foobar" });
		return Content(string.Format("Path = {0}, sample URL = {1}", path, url));

Go to these URLs:

Expected output:
Path = , sample URL = /HelloWorld/foobar
Path = asdf, sample URL = /HelloWorld/foobar
Path = asdf/qwerty, sample URL = /HelloWorld/foobar

Actual output:
Path = , sample URL = /HelloWorld
Path = asdf, sample URL = /HelloWorld
Path = asdf/qwerty, sample URL = /HelloWorld

Notice that the parameters are being matched correctly, but the routes built by Url.Action are incorrect
