What little I could find about Windows INI file syntax didn't identify the valid character set of the keys. Like other Windows-based file formats, INI seems to only be operationally defined. It wouldn't surprise me if you needed to restrict yourself to the usual identifier syntax. In regular expression terms:

I'm guessing python3 would also handle unicode identifiers, but I haven't checked.  That said, there's no reason configparser couldn't handle any key that doesn't have a '#', ';', ':' or '=' in it, in theory.  Whether we *want* to do that or not is a different question, and would lead to the question of what the correct normalization would be for keys.

Am I missing something here?

Python 3.6.0a0 (default:c2c3b79ba992, Jun  4 2015, 10:24:23)
>>> from configparser import ConfigParser
>>> cp = ConfigParser()
>>> cp.read_string("""\
... [remember]
... eth2.6 = True
... eth5 = True
... """)
>>> cp['remember']['eth2.6']

I'm sorry, my fault.

bond1.999  vs bond1.199  
my mistake..
I'm in a big shame :(

# Her bir interface icin Beni hatirla uygulamasi etkinlestirme
# default: False
bond1.999 = True
bond1.778 = False

# Saniye cinsinden inactive session bulma suresi
# her bir interface icin ayri ayri yazilacak.
# default: -1
bond1.199 = 120
bond1.778 = -1
