Admin theme preview fails in some cases.

If the Theme Folder has the '_' or the'-' the theme preview does not load the theme and shows a blank page. The themes tested work perfect, and are XHTML and CSS validated.

Checked also with default themes changing the folder name to include '-' or '_' and also fails with them.

  • Keywords theme folder name preview removed

I have also encountered this one and it seems that the - and _ are getting stripped out somewhere so that a search is being made on the system for non-existent folder. For example, if the theme folder being passed through is theme_1 or theme-1, it goes looking for theme1 on the file system. If you have a theme1, that seems to display in place of theme_1 or theme-1.
