very simply - dilema between practical usability and standards. I
remember Holger stating that using @ char for username is not valid. I
would prefer if RT would act in a more practical way and such char was
allowed in a parser, to prevent problems as yours ...
add following lines into your user.r file and you are done:
net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char
make bitset! #"@"
; ... and if you want to allow # char to be used in path part
net-utils/url-parser/path-char: union net-utils/url-parser/path-char
make bitset! #"#"
