Special characters in name breaks graphite graphs

A few of my services have ‘&’ in their names, graphs for these services are never created. The checks run fine and wsp files are created, but they are never populated with the perfdata (according to whisper-dump.py).

Other than removing the special characters, is there another option to fix this?

Have you tried escaping the \& ?

I ended up just removing the special characters. I’m not sure if escaping would have worked.
