if you create a new solution and use '.' in the name, outwardly everything appears fine and nothing warns you of the impending doom.  You click forward and start editing, run the compiler only to see that the namespace is invalid

name in New Solution dialog == "Test2.8"
namespace in resulting C# = "namespace Test2. {"

This happens in 2.6 as well, btw.
