Hi,

It should print a warning, but we haven't been very strict about the set of 
allowed characters in the past so I don't think 3.14.x can reject all of the 
characters that fall outside the set that is documented as legal.  I'll add 
code to warn about space, both quotes, dot and dollar — any others that I 
should add to that (fairly arbitrary) list?

The real bug here though is that makeBaseApp.pl should have removed the dot 
and any other illegal characters from the user-name when it instantiated the 
example template in the first place.  Bruno's generated example should never 
have tried to create record names with dots in them at all.

Both fixes are almost ready to commit to the 3.14 branch.
