Bug with tags with plus in name

Somehow this question has a tag ruby+cucumber (at least before it was edited). However, this tag appears to be impossible: selecting it immediately expands it into a conjunction of two separate tags, [ruby][cucumber].

What is the nature of plus signs in tags? Are they allowed? Is this a bug?

    It seems to be allowed in the list of tag, and in the question editor, but it will auto expand when click. Most likely a bug. You can tag the question with ruby+cucumber by using \ before +.
