iriencode doesn't respect safe strings

Reported by: Antonis Christofides <anthony@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: Template system Version: master
Severity: Keywords: auto-escaping

This happens probably since autoescape. Steps to reproduce:

  1. In a model, use the following:
        class Admin:
            list_filter = ['column_a', 'column_b']

and you'll have two filters shown in the admin.

  1. Choose something other than "All" in the first filter
  1. Hover the mouse over something other than "All" in the second filter and look at the url.

Result: It will have a "&amp;" somewhere, when it should only have a "&". It doesn't work if you click it, of course.

I narrowed it down to django/contrib/admin/templates/admin/filter.html - choice.querystring is SafeData, but iriencode doesn't respect that and it gets re-escaped.

Solution seems to be marking the iriencode filter with is_safe, since it doesn't introduce dangerous characters - so a safe string in means a safe string out.

(oh, and I can confirm this buggy behaviour)
