    Artist linking problem - '/' in name.

    One of my artists with a '/' in their name shows up fine as a "Top Artist". The picture and count both match what I get via the website. However, clicking on the name in the scrobbler takes me to a page that says "Sorry, that artist could not be found." Clicking play to start an artist radio station results in the wrong station - only the part before the slash is used, which happens to apparently refer to another band or bands.

    This MAY not be unique to the beta, or even the scrobbler - I noticed that MusicBee was unable to match the artist either, possibly for the same reason. I know forward slashes in tags can cause problems...

    Specifics:
    The band is The World/Inferno Friendship Society.
    Starting a radio results in "The World" radio.
    Comparing websites, the Scrobbler and the website use different separators. The fact that the Scrobbler uses one separator with 6 hex numbers (%25252F) instead of 4 seems like it might be the problem?

    -- Finding them via the website results in the page: http://www.last.fm/music/The%2520World%252FInferno%2520Friendship%2520Society
    -- Clicking on the name within the scrobbler takes me to: http://www.last.fm/music/The%252BWorld%25252FInferno%252BFriendship%252BSociety?utm_source=last.fm&utm_medium=application&utm_campaign=last.fm_desktop_application&utm_content=2.1.17&utm_term=WIN
