SQL Developer 3.2.1 patch connection name restriction

I'd like to know whether it's a bug or feature that SQL Dev complains about the "The Connection Name may contain only alphanumeric characters...".

All my previously defined conn.descriptors (names) have a lot of "spec. chars" in then (ie. the IP of the server), and they've been imported successfully after installing the latest patch, but since then every time I try to rename one of them or make a new one using my former naming scheme, I get the error.

My env. is Win7 (x64), Java(TM) 1.7.0_05, SQL Dev

M Zsolt.
