Summary0018636: Extensions with a period in the ID do not load properly
DescriptionDr.Sol's Perpetual:
Likely caused by MM thinking the folder is a file with extension ".Sol's Perpetual".

Instead of "fixing" this, I recommend that we enforce a new rule that addon IDs should be alphanumeric + space/hyphen/underscore/apostrophe/parens, to avoid any additional file confusion issues: [a-zA-Z0-9 -_'()]
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2600

Adding parentheses to the list of allowed characters because we already have addons with parentheses.

Testing note:
- Make sure that all installed addons display properly when opening the addons dialog. (If a currently-installed addon is seen as invalid, the text will not display even though the icon will.
- Try installing these sample addons and verify that they work/fail when they should.
