redirect after Confluence login contains extra url encoded slash and results in 404

I need help to fix this issue.

I click on a bookmark

sent to login page with this os_destination in the url window

submit my login credentials and I'm sent to this url which returns a 404

If I replace the first two %2F with a slash it works.

We are not using apache. the Context path setting is

<Context path="/confluence" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">

Check your Server Base Url in Confluence Admin | General Configuration for a trailing slash. If there's one present, remove it.

base server url does not have a trailing slash

also version of Confluence is Atlassian Confluence 5.3.1,

Could be your login VM files is inserting a trailing slash. Check the source. Not sure why this would start happening, unless someone was mucking around in those files...
