Ok, other theory: maybe durring the process, 1 is added to the char (to be subtracted later). If this is so, 126 becomes 127, which is the control character DEL. Maybe this has something to do with it?
Anyway, its a weird bug.

Here's what was happening:
Base64 has + as a valid character.
+ is not valid for URLs.
~ just happens to have a + in it, if it's in a specific spot.


Solution:
Find/replace + for - on send, as - is a valid URL char and not used in Base64.
Find/replace - for + on receive, then base64 decode.

Problem solved.
