paths that look like


We've seen Apache rewrite this as:


which then doesn't work. To the best of my reading ability this violates 
RFC 3986. Apache needs to be told "nocanon" in order not to do that - 
nginx may also be similarly confused.

If you turn on HTTP request logging (see 
http://www.rabbitmq.com/management.html) you can see if nginx is doing 
such rewriting.

If you do get a working nginx config, please let us know and I'll add it 
to the website.
