Problem Description: CF cannot make an HTTP request when a URL parameter contains a space in its value.

Steps to Reproduce:
cfhttp(url="", method="GET", result="local.result") {
    cfhttpparam(type="URL", name="q", value="a b", encode=true);
writeDump(var=local.result, format="text");

Actual Result: (request is never sent to google) struct
Charset: [empty string]
ErrorDetail: Illegal Argument: Illegal character in query at index 21: b
Filecontent: Connection Failure
Header: [empty string]
Mimetype: Unable to determine MIME type of file.
Responseheader: [struct]
Statuscode: Connection Failure.  Status code unavailable.
Text: YES

Expected Result:  Successfull request/response returned (status code 200 OK)

Any Workarounds: Uninstall CF11 update 18, manually URLEncode parameter values



Uninstalling Update 18 DID NOT solve the issue as we assumed it would... we are now at version 11,0,15,314030 and still have the issue. Could it have been caused by the installer? (as opposed to the actual updated installed?)

we have found that this issue was introduced in Update 17 product version 11,0,17,314003. we cannot update to this version or beyond without experiencing this issue. (NOTE: Update 16 could not be checked.)

Adobe support provided another partial hotfix (to be included in the next update officially) to resolve this issue... after updating to update 18, download and place in the \ColdFusion11\cfusion\lib\updates folder. then restart Coldfusion. We found this to resolve our issue.
