CGI database connection: now urlencode() problem

I have got everything successfully working on both WAMP and Linux webhost to
make database connections and very pleased to be getting on with that.
However, I have another problem which is proving to be a blocker: if I use
URLEncode("anything & everything") then the server just bombs.
I have isolated it down to definitely just the inclusion of a URLEncode()
function. The URLEncode() function doesn't depend on any libraries to my
knowledge, but even so I've put the revbrowser into the externals, similarly
to the method that got the database connection working, to see if that makes
a difference, but it still fails.
I've tried with an old 2.9 engine from Rev Studio in case it was something
in the Enterprise 3.5-dp releases, but same issue. Any ideas anyone or is
this a bug? It works fine in the IDE, and as a standalone, it's only when
the engine is being used as a cgi backend that it's a problem.
Thanks if you can shed any light on this for me.
