Question mark in JSON code breaks Ajax.Request (tested w/ 1.6, 1.7RC2)

Reported by Sascha | June 30th, 2010 @ 09:13 AM

I'm trying to send this JSON code via Ajax.Request to the server which according to jsonlint.com is valid JSON code:
{ "message": "abcdefgh?ijklmno" }

Demo code:

new Ajax.Request('/dummy', { parameters:'{ "message": "abcdefgh?ijklmno" }' });

Expected behavior:
This is what I'd expect to be the POST body:

Actual behavior:
This is what's sent to the server - everything before the question mark is lost resulting in invalid JSON code:

Changing the original code to:
'{ "message": "abcdefgh%3Fijklmno" }' works though.
