Problem characters in object names

Is there a reason why acedb doesn't seem to like colons in object names?
In our database I prefix all sequence and protein objects with a
descriptor of the relevant database. E.g.
I've noticed recently that if I have a keyset window which contains a
number of sequences and I try to perform a query such as:
then it will return no objects. The problem seems to be with the colon.
I can return successful queries such as:
but as soon as the colon appears in the query it fails...is this for a
particular reason (does the colon perform a function similar to
use of the semicolon?).
It only does this when using a query from within a keyset window. Typing
in TREMBL:* from the main window works fine.
Anyone have any ideas?
