Escaping problem with Titanium.Network.HTTPClient


I'm trying to do twitter searches, using the public API.

I would imaging that the correct way to do this is somehting like the code below:

var loader = Titanium.Network.createHTTPClient();    
var uri = "http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q="+escape("from:theno23");
loader.onload = function() { ... }
loader.open("GET", uri);

But if I do that it seems to be double-escaping the q= part, and I actually have to request something like:

var uri = "http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q="+"from:theno23";

However, this means that I can't add additional CGI arguments, as HTTPClient will escape the &s.

Is it correct that HTTPClient is escaping everything after the ? in URIs? If so, is there any way to stop it?
