#83 closed defect (fixed)

Comma in password mishandled (at least for MSN account)

I had problem with my MSN password. Bitlbee accepted my password but connecting to passport service always failed. All other accounts worked fine (different passwords). After numerous tries on 2 bitlbee servers (ver 0.92) and also on I started to suspect special characters in my password and found out that bitlbee does not like comma(,) in my password. After removing comma from my password MSN signs in just fine.

I tried this MSN only, not on other accounts.

Okay, I know where this goes wrong. A small change in http_encode() should fix this, and hopefully it won't cause problems at other places. I'll change it later today.

And yes, the problem is MSN-specific, although http_encode() isn't really part of the MSN module.

This should be fixed now in [110]. Can you test it?
