The bug report wouldn't let me send 2 screenshots, the second showing the
actual account names.
I played with it a little more and found that if I have numbers inside the
brackets, the account names appear correctly in the home view.
If I have text inside the brackets, all text in the brackets is
dropped, regardless of what other characters are in the text.

I think the best solution is to give a warning when a user puts brackets in
an account name, that the brackets are a reserved character and can't be
used in account names. Now that I know they cause problems, it is easy to
select a different character to denote what I wanted to denote with them.
