(Probably not so related to Ctx and OSs other than Win - "-" was DOS valid character but "+" was not:

	http://www.bsdg.org/swag/DOS/0082.PAS.html

Win command "copy" and "xcopy" treats "+" as a separator of file names for some special action.)

BTW: When talking about special characters of file names again -

- I'd vote for '_', '~', '@', '$' and '!' to be valid chars in file names as well.
