Unexpected or invalid characters in server-name breaks the server

      Using a semicolon ( ; ) in the server-name field causes clients to be unable to join the server. No feedback is provided in the console to indicate a problem.

      Steps to reproduce...

      1. Open server.properties and change server-name to "Test;" without quotes
      2. Start the server
      3. Note no indication the server isn't or wont function
      4. Open Minecraft - note the server details is stuck on locating server
      5. Attempt to connect, note the immediate "Unable to Connect" screen

      What I expected to happen...

      Some form of feedback to advise invalid characters in name.

      What actually happened...

      Server starts without issue and appears to be working but no one can connect.
