Can't create categories with different names but similar slugs on Edit Post screen

We run a blog that deals with programming languages. Today we were creating a post concerning the C programming language and attempted to create a new category for it, called "C" (just one character). This angered WordPress; it appeared to create a superfluous "Uncategorized" category, but it wound up not actually creating any categories for the post.
I've attached a screenie so you can see what this looks like after I attempt to create the category.
If it's for some reason forbidden to create categories comprised of a single character, maybe a validation error message of some kind would be in order?
