I added an URL-decoding step after extracting the username/password.  
So with the latest version you should be able to use http://user%

Is this posting, fetching, or both? I tried configuring an end-point

It could pre-populate the string with the previous username. But it  
should of course keep asking for it when no explicit name is set in  
the post or the configuration.

I have no idea. Does fetching also give that error?
