We've just looked into this an it is indeed an issue in Rabbit. It
turns out we are url-encoding the output of the list_*** commands
before they returned to the bash script. This was used to make the
output parsing easier. So I'll take this down as a bug and we'll have
to see what we can do about it. In the meantime, I'm wondering if a
simple url-decode in your processing script can be a workaround?
