      Description


      You cannot have '!'s in your user name / profile name, this breaks java horribly.

      This is something we cannot control or fix

      You can fix it by not having '!'s in your user name / profile name name.

      When minecraft_server.exe or minecraft_server.jar is put into a directory with a name containing the character '!', it crashes with a java.lang.NullPointerException straight away.

      This is obviouslyt not intended, and it took me quite a while to understand why my server wouldn't run.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Make a directory called '!' (or anything containing it)
      2. Put minecraft_server.exe in it.
      3. Run and watch it never open.

      I've tested this on both jars and exes, snapshot 13w25b and 1.5.2.
