The unescape is done because the URL is url-encoded in MPlayer (and so
login/password). '%' seems to work:
% ./mplayer 'http_proxy://login_x:a%b%c@localhost:8123/http://localhost:8000
% polipo daemonise=false 'authCredentials="login_x:a%b%c"'
Established listening socket on port 8123.
% nc -v -l localhost -p 8000
Connection from 127.0.0.1:32831
GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: MPlayer UNKNOWN-4.5.1
Not sent from a jesusPhone.
