Description Alexander 2017-11-01 13:29:29 UTC
The problem is with this method - https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-android/blob/c43c5e671aa57a56f7ba5abc3423e9906af51a83/src/Mono.Android/Xamarin.Android.Net/AndroidClientHandler.cs#L205

If you pass escaped URI without query parameters it escapes '%' chars second time.

So if you pass:
request will be performed with following URI:

But, if you pass same escaped URI with dummy query parameter, like:
it translates correctly to:

I think this behaviour isn't intentional.
