Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-10-29 10:39:36 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new spreadsheet
2. Menu 'Insert -> Link to External Data'
3. Insert this URL: <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?chfieldto=2011-10-29&chfield=[Bug%20creation]&query_format=advanced&chfieldfrom=2011-10-27>
4. Press <Enter> with caret in URL input pane
   Expected: LibO should contact URL and search for Table data
   Actual: nothing, no "Busy" mouse pointer and Wireshark does not show any
           activity to "freedesktop.org"
5. Check URL. you will find 2 square brackets. replace "[" by "%5B" and "]" by
   "%5D"
6. Press <Enter> with caret in URL input pane
   Expected: LibO should contact URL and search for Table data
   Actual: "Busy" mouse pointer and Wireshark shows activity connected to 
           "freedesktop.org", after few moments available tables and ranges 
            dialog will be shown

Coding those characters is not necessary for data interchange (at least not with Seamonkey Browser), so LibO should not require it.
