Looks like a bug with mediawiki, PHP or lighttpd:

$ curl -s -I | sed -n 
HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanently

$ curl -s -I | sed -n 
HTTP/1.0 200 OK

%2B in that position in the URL (path) is equivalent to a plus sign, but the 
web server is not serving the same page. A URL path is composed of "pchar", 
which include the plus sign. That means a plus sign is allowed to appear in a 
path component. The web server *should* reply with the same contents.

You could argue that a URL container should not normalise unless asked to. But 
that's not how QUrl works -- it *always* normalises. In the path of a URL, %2B 
and the plus sign are equivalent (not in the query).
