Renaming of placeholder folders generates a 404 error

When connected to an OpenStack swift container (e.g. Rackspace Cloud Files), if you attempt to rename a 'folder' (e.g. a folder within the path of a file rather than the container itself), the rename operation fails. In the background, a 404 error is generated as it appears the DELETE operation is incorrectly encoding the trailing forward slash (%2F).

Looking at a fiddler trace when running the application, attempting to rename a folder called TEST in a container called container-name:

Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Cyberduck/4.5.2 (15058) (Windows NT (unknown)/6.2) (x86)
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate

This generates a 404:

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
Content-Length: 70
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
X-Trans-Id: txcdc517b58d234eb0Fc18e-00543f754blon3

<html><h1>Not Found</h1><p>The resource could not be found.</p></html>

If I modify the request in Fiddler and change the request URL for the delete from:




the operation completes.
