Subject: [bug] org-insert-link fails on special characters in headlines

Using org-store-link followed by org-insert-link RET RET fails on the following
headline :

****** TODO Special chars in titles > !
       [[*Special%20chars%20in%20titles%20][Special chars in titles > !]]

The link ignores what follows the greater-than sign (>) and thus the inserted
link is still-broken.

Prior to this, I had some working tests with <, it seems both < and > are
treated differently.
