OpenSearch query string problems

* simple query not encoded works fine

http://%myserver%/plugins/servlet/opensearch?query=ancestorIds:%pageid%&format=rss_2.0

* simple query encoded works fine as well

http://%myserver%/plugins/servlet/opensearch?query=ancestorIds%3A%pageid%&format=rss_2.0

* restricting query using type parameter not encoded doesn't work (this is expected, it ignores the type parameter because it is part of the outer Url)

http://%myserver%/plugins/servlet/opensearch?query=ancestorIds:%pageid%&type=page&format=rss_2.0

* restricting query using type parameter encoded doesn't work (this is unexpected!)

http://%myserver%/plugins/servlet/opensearch?query=ancestorIds%3A%pageid%%26type=page&format=rss_2.0

Though, the last version does contain the right search syntax in the results, but not the results.

Search results for query: ancestorIds:%pageid%&type=page

http://%myserver%

Search results for query: ancestorIds:%pageid%&type=page. Search returned 0 results in 16ms
