LiveJournal consumer seems to fail with encoded urls

OpenID seemed to be a good excuse to try out Ruby on Rails. 24 hours
later and I have a working server (will be live sometime soon).

But in my travels it seems that LJ fails if elements in the redirect
(specifically, return_to) are URL encoded.

Here's an example of a redirect which causes LJ to say "invalid return_to"

Disabling the encoding (icky) makes LJ work but breaks Net::OpenID
based systems.
