[ (Left-square-bracket), + (plus), and ] (right-square-bracket) and related symbols appear to invalidate celURL's created in Celestia (using ctrl-C or ctrl-INSERT) in the same way that whitespace does (the whitespace issue has been around forever).

Try yourself by downloading and creating URLs on jdavies norad-satellites which have a lot of examples of names exhibiting the problem.

    Escaping works in Qt version of v1.7.0. Closing this issue.
