This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, Motif Version 2.2.2)
 of 2003-05-20 on ate
configured using `configure  --with-x-toolkit=motif'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: address@hidden
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-9
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Start emacs with 'emacs -q'. Put into the *scratch* buffer the following line:

http://www.warentest.de/pls/sw/SW$NAV.Startup?p_KNR=0&p_E1=2&p_E2=0&p_E3=50&p_E4=0&p_Inh=I:1162925

Place point to the url and then type in the following function:

  M-x browse-url-at-point

The browser program receives as url the following string:

http://www.warentest.de/pls/sw/SW.Startup?p_KNR=0&p_E1=2&p_E2=0&p_E3=50&p_E4=0&p_Inh=I:1162925

It seems that the dollar sign '$' in the url needs to be escaped.

Harald
