Currently nginx's webdav module URL-encodes the value for the "displayname" entity member. According to RFC2518 (e.g. section 13.2) it should contain a "name suitable for representation to the user". They don't mention it should be URL encoded, and I interpret this as a "plain" displayname. Furthermore since it's only for display, and not a real path, why should it be URL-encoded?

Note that all other Webdav-servers I've used until now (Apache, Lighttp, IIS) also do NOT URL encode the displayname, so I believe nginx is at fault here.

No displayname is returned by nginx at all, as it doesn't support the PROPFIND method. You may want to report this problem elsewhere (likely, to the dav-ext module issue tracker).
