The + is not reserved in the path part of the URL, so when mod_proxy
does a canonical encoding it doesn't unnecessarily encode the +.

Sounds like your app is applying some special, non-spec significance
to fields in the URL.  You might try reading the cautions about the
mod_proxy "nocanon" option and seeing if it helps.
