Flow is URL-encoding '%' signs in query parameters

I have a custom connector I built that has a sort_token field that I can use to paginate through large collections of data.  But I've run into a problem, which is that the sort_token occasionally includes percent signs, and Flow seems to be url-encoding the token, which changes every instance of '%' to '%25'.  And of course the call fails.

 

Here's a photo of a test demonstrating this behavior.  As you can see, the sort token has two percent signs towards the end.  If you look at the request URL that was actually sent, they have both been changed to %25.

Any way around this?
