Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.10.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Filenames that contain % signs cannot be opened by exo-open. For example,

    exo-open '/tmp/%.pdf'

will fail with the error:

    Failed to open URI "file:///tmp/%.pdf".
    Operation not supported.

The filetype does not affect the error message.
