After clicking "apply" on a new profile created, probe reloads and the saved profile will not retain the URL (empty) and the profile name becomes corrupt

When the probe loads the profile it will log something like:

Nov 26 09:29:34:363 [9552] url_response: [http:] profile added
Nov 26 09:29:34:363 [9552] url_response: [http:] invalid url ''

CONSIDERATIONS:
This issue happens if the?below 2 conditions are true:
1. profile name contains special characters (i.e.: http://google.com)
2. the profile is authentication enabled (host/port/username/password for proxy has been added)

SOLUTION:
Profile name must NOT contain special characters.
