“Password can only contain letters and numbers”

Sourceforge is giving me this junk:

Please note: passwords should contain only letters and numbers. Inclusion of other characters in your password may result in inability to access some SourceForge.net systems.

How annoying. Throwing a few symbols in there is a good way to make a password a little bit more secure.

Lots of banks have systems that are similarly crippled.
