I think this is a major bug breaking Mediawikis since 1.26. This is a problem especially for non-English wikis containing special characters in article titles. It would be nice if this gets more attention.

In REQUEST_URI you have %c3 instead of %C3. Assuming your browser sent %C3, something must have decoded it to unicode and re-encoded it back to lower-case hex.
