Having East Asian characters in your computer name prevents a user from being able to log in

Greetings all,

Got a very interesting find where the client fails to connect to the server because your PC name has East Asian characters in your computer e.g if you set your computer name to like one with kanji 山田-PC (Yamada-PC) it would fail to login and return a "Failed to connect to server. Please try again later." error message. However if you set your name to all English characters e.g Yamada-PC you will be able to login successfully.

I've tested this on my desktop and laptop multiple times and they both give results as stated above.

This will probably be only a minor issue but it was fun finding about it regardless spent a good few hours troubleshooting my desktop only to find out it really needs a name change as my PC name contained kanji.
