The query_string "a=1&b=2" and "a=1&b=2" should be equivalent, but they are not with php. A workaround is to use arg_separator.input = ";&".

This is wrong.

& is the way to specify & in HTML.

For example:

<a href="script.php?var1=value&amp;var2=othervalue">Click here to continue</a>

But the browser should (according to HTML-specs) request this uri:
script.php?var1=value&var2=othervalue
from internet (i.e., your script)

If the browser doesn't do that, it's a browser bug.
