Description PJ 2012-02-02 12:11:45 UTC
When creating a c# console project, using invalid characters results in a project that won't build.

I *was* able to get an iPhone single view template to run using a crazy gobbledygook name

Mono for Android solution with garbled name failed on package creation, but still allowed me to select a device and try to load the failed package.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a console project/MfA application project with the name

2. Run
