As I found out, its a problem with the validChars property in the
projectName widget in startpage.ui which is of type KRestrictedLine. It
seems it doesn't accept regular expressions ( I tried [a-z] but it only
accepted 'a' when I typed). Currently validChars is set to ^[\\w-\\.]+$ .

We could put qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm there, but I think there should be a
better way. Any ideas?

(I've also CCed this mail to the author of KRestrictedLine widget).
