Mac .app forgets all hosts when password contains brace

Description

I am not sure whether this is specific to the Mac .app version or affects thin client connections in general. This was tested on app versions 1.3.14 and 1.3.15.

A couple of days ago I added a new host to Connection Manager and since then, upon quit and relaunch (or even just closing the Connection Manager window without connecting) it would forget all saved hosts.

Reverting to backups of hosts.conf prior to that addition worked fine.

I've come to conclude that the issue occurred because of a brace aka curly bracket { character in my password. Changing my password to not include that character immediately resolved the issue. Note the password was in quotes in hosts.conf, so it definitely should not have been being read as part of the config file's structure.

The password containing the brace character did not prevent me from connecting when details were manually re-entered, only saving any hosts entered in Connection Manager.

I'm not sure how to get logs from the Mac .app version of Deluge but I will gladly post them if somebody can tell me how.
