Prism | Error when importing an alembic into houdini 18.5

Hi!

I'm getting an error when importing an alembic as a custom file via the state manager import dialog (Hou 18.5).
It does work however when I move the .abc to the assets folder within the prism folder structure and then import custom file from there.

What is the taskname of the version which you are importing?

It sounds like the taskname contains a character, which is not allowed in Houdini node names.
