    I made another attempt at this by replacing the URI library requirement with Addressable::URI (http://addressable.rubyforge.org/) to gain better unicode character handling.

    This did add unicode URI support without HTTP escaping (nice to have feature), but didn't solve the problem with Wikipedia.

    At this point, I'm planning on joining Wikipedia's support mailinglist for such issues and see if they can help debug why things are being refused.

    @anthonyogden what do you mean?

    This is a part of an open source project. So if you mean, "shouldn't this issue be private?", then the answer is no. It's public on purpose.

    Are you referring to the issue specifics, I.e. can you reproduce the specifics of the issue with the software, it's a bit of a flickering one. I haven't tested it recently.
