#7737 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add testcase for special characters in query,

As reported in trac:ticket:4136 and fixed in trac:changeset:8721, some characters have special meaning in queries and can therefor not be used in searches. For instance the '&' character needs to be replaced with '\&' or it will be treated as a delimiter. There's a testcase for this in trac, but none exist when using the XmlRpcPlugin. Attached patch implement a simple testcase for the XmlRpcPlugin with the same strings as in the trac testcase.

(In [9171]) XmlRpcPlugin: Adding a test for ticket query with special characters such as & + |. Test fails for Trac 0.11 (known issue), but not 0.12 as that fully supports the \ escaping.

Closes #7737. Thanks to Azoff for test + testing!
