Google International Domain Names Bug

Google web search has a bug with international domain names. They escape them wrongly as this search shows; click on the top result and it will show you a file-not-found message; however, if you copy the URL into the adress bar you can see it works fine. [Via 20y.]

Update: Further testing shows the bug only appears here when I’m signed in to my Google Account, using Firefox (something like this is the buggy URL Google serves). When I’m signed out it works correctly in Firefox, and it works in Internet Explorer both when signed out/ signed in.
