> When inserting a document in a CouchDB 1.6.1 database, the response sent by CouchDB contains
a "Location" HTTP header with the URI of the newly created document.
> However, if the "_id" of the new document contains non-ASCII characters, this "Location"
header is not properly encoded.
> Example:
> {code}
>  % curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST http://localhost:5984/test/ --data
'{"_id": "xxxé"}'
> *   Trying ::1...
> * Connected to localhost (::1) port 5984 (#0)
> > POST /test/ HTTP/1.1
> > Host: localhost:5984
> > User-Agent: curl/7.42.0
> > Accept: */*
> > Content-Type: application/json
> > Content-Length: 16
> > 
> * upload completely sent off: 16 out of 16 bytes
> < HTTP/1.1 201 Created
> < Server: CouchDB/1.6.1 (Erlang OTP/17)
> < Location: http://localhost:5984/test/xxxé
> < ETag: "1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"
> < Date: Sat, 25 Apr 2015 21:33:04 GMT
> < Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
> < Content-Length: 68
> < Cache-Control: must-revalidate
> < 
> {"ok":true,"id":"xxxé","rev":"1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"}
> {code}
> According to RFC 2616 ("HTTP headers only contain ASCII") and RFC 2396 ("here is how
to construct an URI from ASCII characters"), the "Location" header should be formatted as:
> {code}
> Location: http://localhost:5984/test/xxx%C3%A9
> {code}
> The "spray.io" framework warns against this invalid response when doing such a request
towards a CouchDB database.
