Status: Not a bug Package: Reproducible Crash

When rawurlencodeing this character ' 
three \\\ are inserted each time the 
encodeing is performed. And this adds
up since the \ is coded too. It can cause
a crash fairly quickly when encoding is done
a lot.

I was wrong! It is not the rawurlencode that causes the problem.
But somehow a variable containing a ' character encoded as %27 on the Location
line is reproduced as \' .
I don't know why!?

support questions. Your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.
