The error message is misleading, as you've correctly indicated.
You have a few options:
1)Downgrade to an earlier version
2)Use 'at' instead of @
3)Manually edit the connections XML file to rename your connections as you please.
We're not allowing certain characters in the connection names b/c it was causing issues with other features in the product - has nothing to do with the OS file name limitations.
