You are right. The X3 page-creator input does in fact block unwanted characters (?&^$,/\etc), but considering period is/should be valid, it does not block period. In fact, before X3 had drag-and-drop mechanism for folder-sorting, our recommended method for pre-sorting folders was to use "numbered folders" eg. "3.foldername", where number would be hidden from URL.
Thus, since periods are considered valid, this is simply an X3 bug as reported.

Apologies for inconvenience!
