Description (partial)

Symptom:
This problem occurs when a user using the AnyConnect client tries to connect to an ASA  with the group-policy using SAML authentication. The user is prompted for username and password, but it does not allow the user to input special characters such as the "@" sign as part of the username, which is common when using Microsoft UPN as the username, for example, user@example.com. This works when the username is copy and pasted in, it just cannot be typed in.

Conditions:
This problem happens with SAML authentication when the username contains special characters such as the "@"character in it.
