Task name with a colon in it (:) shows a " Task not found error " on editing the task.


Problem Description:

Task name with a colon in it (:) shows a "An error occured scheduling the task." on editing the task. When going back to the scheduled tasks list that item no longer exists. Trying to add it again with the same name gives the same error.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create task with a colon in the name. For example: Reports: Task 1
2. Edit the new task from the tasks list and save.
3. View error.
4. Try creating a new task with that same name.
5. View error on save.

Actual Result:

The same error appears in steps 3 and 5 above.

An error occured scheduling the task.
Unable to store Job : 'SERVERSCHEDULETASK#$%^DEFAULT.job_REPORTS: TASK 1', because one already exists with this identification.

Expected Result:

The task can be edited and still appear in the list.

Any Workarounds:

Don't use colons in the file names.
