Can't have "." in Sample Map name

It seems in the most recent develop build you can't include a period in sample map names, so any previous sample maps I've made (e.g. "Mr. Blippy") are now irreversibly messed up for my end users without a reinstall of the samples. Now, if I try to convert a sample map like "Mr. Blippy" to a monolith, the monolith will be named just "Mr.ch1". This also irreversibly affects any presets using these sounds.
@Christoph-Hart Do you know if there was something added recently that could have altered this behavior?
EDIT: It appears the issue is when you try to load a sample map with a "." in the name, it can't find the monolith because it assumes the name stops at the period. So "Mr. Blippy" looks for a monolith named "Mr".

@Casey-Kolb Generally a bad idea to put
.in file names because
Windowssome operating systems think that means the end of the file name and whatever follows is the extension. But since it was working for you before I think this is a bug that needs resolving.

@d-healey Yep, and I'm having this issue on Mac too, so it's something in the way the sample map names are being parsed when looking for the monoliths.

@Casey-Kolb Yes I rewrote some of the monolith file handling stuff to allow split monolith files (for samplemaps that have more than 2GB of samples). This might have introduced this issue.
I'll take a quick look. I second Davids advice that it's not the smartest thing to do but now it's in the open and you don't want every user to reinstall stuff because of that.
