Until PHP 5.0.5 with magic_quotes = OFF we preserved '+' characters in $_GET variables. Since PHP 5.1.1 it appears that $_GET is automatically urlencoded and in order to recover '+' we need to urldecode and ereg_replace(' ', '+', ...). If this is new standard behavior please provide me with reference on when this change has taken place and the reason behind it.

No such change has been done. You're doing something wrong.

hmm ok. Maybe Apache changed.

One more question: are GET's automatically urlencoded or not? I'm not sure if our 'fix' is a good or bad idea, although it seems to work now.
