FastDL does not URLEncode the request URI #2056

When the FastDL download manager sends the HTTP request to download a file it does not URLEncode the URI which can result in files with spaces or other unsupported characters not downloading (properly).

The URI should be encoded in DownloadManager::StartNewDownload before passing the complete URI into ISteamHTTP::CreateHTTPRequest.

The documentation for that method makes no mention of URL encoding so i assume it does not do this internally. Since downloads with spaces fail, this reinforces the assumption.
