Branches defined with slash "/" return 404 error

I have an issue with accessing results of a build when the branch name defined contains the slash ("/") character.
we are trying to define feature branches (a branch containing a collection of work) using the following format:

we set this in the appveyor.yml file like the following:

  - feature/Story-123-story-456-TestBranch

After the build executes on AppVeyor, it returns in the list as passed. Clicking on the link from the history list to go to the specific build results (to see the console, test, artifacts, etc) returns a blank page with a 400 error in the debugging console and it fails to load the page.
I believe this is due to having %2F in the "path" because changing it to be "/" loads the page as expected.

Can you assist?
Thanks in advance!

    Could you please drop a screenshot of the page where you have the link leading to 400 error?

    I initially would see the same link error from the history list, however since this build has moved down and can only be found after clicking 'show more' a few times, that link seems to be correct.
    the links for console, test, artifacts, etc. are all incorrect.

    Thanks for the help!

    OK, thanks. We've been able to reproduce the issue. Will deploy a fix later today.
