Ved crashes when you insert a hashtag into a new script name

When you insert a number sign (#) or a hashtag (I prefer to call them hashtags) into the name of a script while creating said script, it will crash Ved. This is proof that the evil developer Dav999 opposes such use of hashtags because people who use hashtags are too annoying.

I can't reproduce this; so let me guess you tried placing a terminal or script box, entered a name which happened to have a # in it, and it crashed because you tried editing the script afterwards. Am I correct?
As noted in the changelog, it doesn't automatically create new scripts yet when you create a terminal/script box, that will come in a later version. Thanks for reporting anyways.

However if you did create a script via the script list, and Ved crashed, please let me know what the script name in question looks like.

(Also, a hashtag looks like #word, a standalone # is not a hashtag.)

EDIT: See comments, fixed in a29.

It's called a hash.

Or a number sign, a pound sign, or even sharp.

Guess I wasn't specific enough, sorry. I tried creating a new script via the script list, and if you insert a # anywhere into the name of the script, and then press "OK", Ved will crash. I wasn't specifically talking about trying to create a new script box or terminal, though. If it helps, Ved α27 didn't crash when creating a new script with a # in it. If that doesn't help, maybe a visual depiction would help: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/lcb4axgzt38l39c/The%20evil%20developer%20Dav999%20opposes%20hashtags.png

Ok I can reproduce it now. This happens as of a28 if you try to add a script to any loaded level, with any script name. It has to do with a change I made when I added the integrity checks causing this older bug to come to light.

Thanks again.
