I am trying to use the Map bookmarklist tool to map a certain list. It is this one:

It is owned by a user that is called "". As you may have noticed, they have a plus sign ('+') in their name.

Autocomplete for the Owner field at the Map bookmarklist stops suggesting names when you get to the plus sign (no suggestions). If you type it all in yourself and click "Get lists", the drop-down menu comes up empty.

The list in question is very much public/shared, so I am guessing something is up with the handling of the plus sign.

This is indeed a bug. Unfortunately, there is quite my no limit in what users can put into their usernames and some characters are specials in various cases and need special handling, which was indeed omitted here.

Anyway, if you just want to map bookmark list, you can use browser plugin, which will add you a link directly from the bookmark list (your link above) to the PGC Map, which works just fine:

A decent workaround indeed, although the bug report still stands :)
