The workaround solution is to edit the HTML file and pass the internal values with special charachters.

Path to edit: /opt/splunk/etc/app_name/default/ui/nav/alerts/custom_alert.html

<option value="4-Minor/Localized">4-Minor/Localized</option>

I'm not an AoB user, but it seems pretty straightforward to me.  Use only alphanumerics and underscores in the "Internal Value" box.  "4_Minor_Localized" in your example.  Since it's internal it doesn't have to be pretty and the lack of special characters will avoid other nasty surprises.
