Whitespace is not escaped in URL for svn:externals, and URL-encoded characters are replaced with whitespace

Message In my repository there are some svn:externals with whitespace such as the
following:
`^/Projects/Verasoni​cs/trunk/Pthreads Windows 64`

If I enter the URL as ^/Projects/Verasonic​s/trunk/Pthreads%20W​indows%2064, I
can save the URL. However, when I reopen the dialog, the "%20" disappear and
when I go to resave I get an error. This is possibly related to [5].

The following set of screen captures demonstrates the issue:

[1] URL has been entered with escape characters and was saved with no error.

[2] Edit External dialog has been opened to edit the URL.

[3]Edit External dialog has been closed. URL-encoded characters have been
replaced with whitespace.

[4] OK was selected from the svn:externals dialog. Error is issued.

The workaround is to re-add the URL encoded characters every time the Edit
Externals dialog is opened and OK pressed to save an edited external.
