A Rest Request behaves differently in MS.NET as in Mono Linux.

Under Ms.Net.Windows this results in a http get Request to this URL: 

Under Mono.Linux this results in a http get Request to this URL:

For somereason the URL Encoding is missing here.

Wild guess: The code in UriTemplate just forgets on applying the escaping.

Demo Code:

public interface ITestInterface
	[WebGet(UriTemplate = "report?tt={p}")]
	bool Report(string p);

public void Test()
	Uri frUriReport = new Uri(Uri.UriSchemeHttp + Uri.SchemeDelimiter + "whocares.nowhere:8080/fr.svc");
	var cfReport = new WebChannelFactory<ITestInterface>(new WebHttpBinding(), frUriReport);
	ITestInterface channel = cfReport.CreateChannel();
	string testdata = "2012:cool";
	var result = channel.Report(testdata);
