[ic] Strange insertion of plus sign for blank spaces in area search post

I have been running a MV/IC store on an old Linux box from home for years.
Now I get a dedicated server from a company and install everything and one
search form I have is now inserting + signs for spaces in a 'se' string.
sample: bruce springsteen is outputted as bruce+springsteen instead of
bruce%20springsteen. The plus sign actually creates a 404 error which is not
parsed by interchange to display the missing.html page... Strange..

And ideas why the following search post would cause the plus sign instead of
replacing blanks with %20

eg: on RH Linux 7.3 and using IC 4.6.5

<FORM ACTION="[area search]">
<input type="hidden" name="fi" value="products">
<input type="hidden" name="ml" value="50">
<input type="hidden" name="tf" value="artist,title">
<input type="hidden" name="tc" value="f">
<input type="hidden" name="sp" value="results">
<input type="hidden" name="su" value="1">
<input type="hidden" NAME="id" VALUE="[data session id]">

<select size="1" name="sf">
<option selected value="artist">Artist</option>
<option value="title">Title</option>
<option value="description">Details</option>
<option value="sku">SKU</option>
<option value="media">Media</option>
<option value="category">Category</option>
<option value="label">Label</option>

<INPUT TYPE=image SRC="/images/go.gif" WIDTH="22" ALT="Search Now!"
HEIGHT="22" ALIGN="top" BORDER="0" name="submit">

Thanks in advance

Thank You
