Not a bug Punctuation marks in usernames

Problem with usernames with punctuation marks.

Example:

Username: Ronaldo & Bowie

When I'am trying search to find all threads by Ronaldo & Bowie
I get the following error: The following members could not be found: Ronaldo.

Anywhere that uses AutoComplete expects you to provide the full username.

Presumably you do not have a user called Ronaldo.

If you enter their full username does it work?

Yes, seems to be add-on related.

Anything I try locally with the same name works:

You can search for that member, select their name, and search for their content.

Just tested that too, that's all working ok. So it doesn't seem to be a bug. I assume it works if you disable that add-on?

Yes, when I disabled that addon, it works good within both languages.
It's almost certainly a bug in the addon, not in XF 1.3
Thank you for your advice :)
