Public bug reported:

Low priority - easy work around

On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for gnome-terminal-server 3.18.3-1ubuntu1

The below error appears upon executing the below script.

Failed to register: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs:
Requested bus name "my.linode.20180204.145656.Terminal" is not valid

The easy work around is to prefix the date and time stamps with a
letter.  I did not try anything else.  I used D and T as the prefix
letters for the date and time, respectively.  See the script below which
has both the work around and recreate error lines.

Terminal Profile "linode" has the Command tab settings as follows:

Checked Run a custom command instead of my shell
Custom command: ssh
When command exits: Hold the terminal open




##  Code that works - easy work around - prefix digits with a letter
ds=`/bin/date '+D20%y%m%d.T%H%M%S'`

## Code that recreates the error
ds=`/bin/date '+20%y%m%d.%H%M%S'`
