Netrw bug

As reported by one of Debian's users[0], netrw is not properly escaping
semicolons when calling commands since it is usually used to indicate
the end of a command.  It looks like adding ';' to the escape calls in
NetRead and NetWrite as well as escaping the tmpfile name fixes the

exe "!".g:netrw_http_cmd." ".escape(tmpfile,' ?;&')." http://".g:netrw_machine.escape(b:netrw_fname,' ?;&')
