IE9 and YouTube just a bug?

I just found out that I can’t insert the ampersand (&) character in the YouTube search box by typing it (copy-paste works).
It works on every other website that I have tested but not on YouTube.

Screenshot from FireFox:

Did I just found a little bug in IE9 RC or is it Google who is playing a dirty browser wars game?

Other people with IE9 RC can all reproduce this. I could not find any bug report of this on
When using compatibility mode in IE9 it works but when I use the default mode, it doesn’t work.

RAW (probably useless) HeaderData from Fiddler:

I assume that it is just a bug in IE9 RC but these days we need to investigate everything, don’t we?!
It could be a trick to damage the IE image by irritating IE users. But we all know that Google is ‘not’ Evil, don’t we? 🙄

Bug or not? That’s the question.

Update: still doesn’t work in the RTW version.

    sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
