(*) should be "javascript: '%46'"

> Example
> JavaScript URLs that are URL encoded via FrameLoader::completeURL are not
> properly decoded before eventually being passed to both the XSSAuditor and
> ScriptController::evaluate, because the method KURL::decodeURLEscapeSequences
> is NOT the inverse function of KURL::parse().
> In particular, this occurs in FrameLoader::requestFrame:
> http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/WebCore/loader/FrameLoader.cpp#L348
> where the completeURL() is called on |scriptURL| before it is passed to
> frame->loader()->executeIfJavaScriptURL().
> Remarks:
> The call flow of FrameLoader::completeURL is:
> FrameLoader::completeURL -> Document::completeURL -> KURL::KURL(const KURL&
> base, const String& relative, ...) -> KURL::init - > KURL::parse
> The issue is that KURL::parse uses the method KURL::appendEscapingBadChars,
> which as its name implies escapes only bad characters.
> One such bad character is the space character. Consider the JavaScript URL,
> "javascript: '%0A'" (*). Calling KURL::parse on this (directly or implicitly
> via one of the functions in the above call chain) will result in a KURL object
> that represents the URL, "javascript:%20'%46'" (**). Notice, this result
> differs from the fully URL encoded result of "javascript:%20%27%2546%27".
> Decoding the string form of (**) using KURL::decodeURLEscapeSequences produces
> the result: "javascript: 'F'". Clearly, this is not the inverse of the (**).
