Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PEAR itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PEAR, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PEAR.

It works here (3 different browsers)

It works, because I've changed the URL. =/

Try again and note that ampersands in URL are transformed to & 's.
 [2006-02-18 09:25 UTC]
what's the exact target url? (copy it here)
 [2006-02-18 09:41 UTC]
This bug has been fixed in CVS.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

Just edit your PEAR details to specify URL with a ampersands in wishlist field to see how it "works". I've just adjusted mine for you, but better check this overhtmlescaping yourself.

account-edit.php seems to quote the posted values before inserting into the database and wishlist.php outputs the quoted uri directly using header("Location: $url");

The result is that the browser is redirected to an uri where every & is quoted to &

A solution could be to use unhtmlentities() from in wishlist.php before the call to header('Location: ..')

This seems to work for me (now).

techtonik, mikl:  Please change your wishlist URL on<handle> and replace all &amp; with & there.  After that it should work properly.

And please give feedback here afterwards.
