We should probably filter the name inputs to make sure there are no tabs.

In the mean time, please note the upstream bugtracker is https://fedorahosted.org/cobbler and items here may be misplaced seeing I get a /lot/ of email.

Opened up a Trac item here:  https://fedorahosted.org/cobbler/ticket/477#preview

Meanwhile, do not do that :)

Closing, as this should have been fixed a LONG time ago.
