Failure serving a file with a percentage character in the file name

An unexpected 404 error cropped up today while attempting to serve an image file with a percentage character in the file name. Windows has no issues with percentages but apparently IIS or something else in the pipeline refused to serve this file. Interestingly, the '%' character URL-encodes as '%25'... go figure.
