What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Within the CouchDB browser interface (_utils) create a document with an
id of firstname.lastname@example.org - succeeds
2. Now try and do anything with that document through the browser
interface: The path changes to question marks - you cannot delete the
document from the browser interface or add fields to the document
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Does not appear to be a valid document.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Latest version 0.7xx from svn on Ubuntu

This could be slightly related to the issue I just posted. I'd imagine applying my
patch would give him an error message about the revision not applying.
It sounds like the same problem that occurs when you click the next and previous
links for a document. since the @ symbol is how you request revisions couchdb will
misinterpret the document request as a document revision request.

here is a patch that at least returns an error message and redirects to the database
It doesn't tackle the real problem which is that an @ symbol is allowed unescaped in
Apologies but it includes my previous patch for the doc revision requests problem
