Strange Behavior in WebRequest.Crea te("...") and System.Uri("... ")


I've noticed, after moving some of our code to 2.0, that
System.Net.WebR equest.Create(S ystem.String) and
System.Uri(Syst em.String) no longer behave as they did in 1.1


string emailHttpPath =
"http://myexchange.mydo main.com/exchange/mymailboxalias/inbox/mysubfolder./;

// Notice the punctutation in the end, which is a legal web folder

HttpWebRequest webRequest =
(HttpWebRequest )WebRequest.Cre ate(emailHttpPa th);

// Do stuff with the webrequest...

// This fails with a 404 error in 2.0 framework, but succeeds in 1.1
HttpWebResponse webResponse =
(HttpWebRespons e)webRequest.Ge tResponse();

The reason the above code fails, is that when
WebRequest.Crea te(System.Strin g) is called, it removes the punctuation
from the httpPath making it look like this:
WITHOUT the punctuation.
The url without the trailing punctuation correctly doesn't exist, so
the error it self is perfectly correct. However, I can't see how the
parsing of the url can be correct.

The same thing also applies for the System.Uri class. I tried
instantiating a System.Uri object with the above string http path, and
it also removes the trailing punctuation. I'm guessing
WebRequest.Crea te(System.Strin g) internally puts a System.Uri on top of
the string http path.

What to do here?
I found this information about changes in System.Uri:

Which seems to suggest that System.Uri always escapes urls. In the
above case, it seems however, that it doesn't escape correctly.
