error from log

1) Add a HTTP Request Sampler to a Test Plan
2) switch to the Post Body view.
3) write a percent sign (and any additional content) in the data field
4) switch out of the sampler

Nothing special should happen

* The Element is displayed without text and a random symbol
* When clicking the element again it shows the error "Problem updating GUI - see log file for details"

Ah, sorry, forgot the 2nd part (the "breaks the testplan" one): 
1) when you then save the test plan it works, but gives you more of the same warnings and does not remember the saved state (it always shows "there are unsaved changes" when closing the testplan)
2) When you want to reopen the saved test plan it fails and tells you the test plan is invalid.
