Hello,

We're reconciling Getty AAT terms and ran into a strange bug. We noticed that whenever OpenRefine got to the term 'colored pencils' it would stop the reconciliation process. And sure enough, if you look at https://services.getty.edu/vocab/reconcile/?queries={%22q1%22:{%22query%22:%22colored%20pencils%22}} you can see looking up that term causes a 500 error.

Interestingly enough, it seems in some way it's the presence of the string 'pencil' that is causing problems, you can see 'oil pencils' also causing this: https://services.getty.edu/vocab/reconcile/?queries={%22q1%22:{%22query%22:%22oil%20pencils%22}} or even just 'pencil' or pencils': https://services.getty.edu/vocab/reconcile/?queries={%22q1%22:{%22query%22:%22pencil%22}}

I can't be certain but I think we were using this about a month or so ago and didn't see this issue, but anyhow something's amiss. I hope this is the right forum to post this, but let me know if the openrefine forum would be better.

Thanks,

Joseph Anderson
