Something is causing my query search [javascript] -[php] votes:0 is:question to turn into javascript -php votes:0 is:question after signing in.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Make sure you are not connected
  • Search for any query containing tags (still not connected)
  • On the results page, click log in
  • Connect via any(?) of the possibilities (I used Gmail (I was already signed in on Gmail (just in case that matters (sorry for the nested parenthesis))))
  • Check if your query was properly escaped
  • Open a bug report on meta
  • Have your question closed as a dupe of Improper query escaping in the return URL after logging in

Comparing the two URLs:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=[javascript]+-[php]+votes%3A0+is%3Aquestion
http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=javascript+-php+votes:0+is:question

The return URL:

http://stackoverflow.com/users/login?returnurl=%2fsearch%3fq%3djavascript%2b-php%2bvotes%3a0%2bis%3aquestion

Also, I didn't tag this SO since I believe it happens on all sites
