You didn't say which version of the IRCD you're running, so I'm assuming
you're running 7.0. In the file src/s_user.c, on line 745, it checks to
make sure the first character is alphanumeric. Comment out that line and
the one below it like so:

  /*  if (!IsAlNum(*p))
          return NO; */

Recompile and reinstall. That should fix it.

DISCLAIMER: I haven't tested this myself. Use at your own risk!
