I have a directory in my source-tree containing the

'c-++'. It is not possible to browse these directories.

    Looks like this is caused by the httpwash function being over-zealous at stripping out characters.

    Perhaps we can get away with not washing variables - it seems that there are few dangerous calls that use web-provided parameters, and we could simply check at these places for troublesome characters, rather than globally restrict them.

    This is related to the glimpse RE bug as well

    Bug 536369 is a duplicate of this.

    This has now been fixed in CVS.

    If you can install the new version and check that it solves your
    problem, then it would be very useful.

    Thanks for reporting this defect and helping to make LXR better.
