Import connections with + (plus) sign in the name

There seems to be an issue with importing connections that contain a "+" sign in the (reference) name.

This is easy to replicate:

* Create a new connection and name it e.g. "Test 123 +" (no matter if there are whitespaces or not)
* Export the connections (e.g. c:\temp\exp.xml)
* Look at the XML- you will find the connections names as they are...
* Now delete the test connection in SQL developer and try to import the connection from the file

I do not get any errors but nothing happens either. The connection simply gets skipped. When importing a connection file with many connection entries in it it will import all but those with a "+" sign in the name (this might apply to other characters as well).
