It also crashes shipping 10.4.10 Safari/WebKit (open
<http://ninja.caboo.se/tasks/981c84d3>, open the left image in new tab, copy
its URL, open a new tab, paste the URL into address bar). The crash is in
Safari itself, not in WebKit. I couldn't find a way to reproduce it with 3.0.2

As for the original bug - I think we are supposed to convert URLs to
precomposed Unicode (%C3%BC, not u%CC%88), and we now do. In this particular
case, it makes us incompatible with other browsers, but I still think that it's
the right thing to do, because preferring decomposed Unicode is a Mac thing,
and converting an URL to precomposed form makes it more Windows-like.
