[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#759412: exo-utils: exo-open fails to open a filename containing a percent sign (%)

This bug occurs for me as well, and is a regular annoyance.
When downloading papers published by Springer, they are given
names (by Springer) like 10.1007%2Fs00211-014-0636-y.pdf
which always contain a percent sign.  If I click on
the link to the downloaded file in my browser, instead
of getting the file in a PDF viewer, I get the error
message from exo-open.

I use xfce4 under Ubuntu 14.04.1 with exo-utils 0.10.2
