Bug Description

Steps to reproduce -

- Open task editor
- Create a new task with a tag containing '&' in it (say @home&work)

You'll find that the tag is not displayed in the tag sidebar at all. Instead the tag below which it was supposed to be shown is displayed in place of it.
If the tag was supposed to be shown at the first position, 'gtg-tags-sep' is shown in place of it

when a bug is assigned to someone it means that they are working on it. It doesn't make sense to put a dual effort on same bug.
Though in this case, I don't think the assigned person is working on it anymore so you can go ahead and assign it to yourself but please keep the above line in mind from next time.

I'll keep that in mind from next time
