peinst mount name garbled in KBE boot

I just built a new KBE using the new 7.0 SDA Media Manager and Windows 10 build 1909, with the 1903 PE (MS says to use the 1903 PE with Win1909).

As the KBE boots, it gets to the point where it's trying to mount 'peinst' (I think, from the context), but instead of displaying that it's trying to mount '\\ip-or-name-of-my-sda]\peinst' it says

Enter the password for '"%KBOX_IP[and some of my samba password]' to connect to '[ip-of-my-sda]'

I'm just guessing, but I'm thinking the SDA Media Manager, or the SDA itself, has a bug, that is mangling a variable for the SDA's IP and the samba password.

Yes, I have decided it's a bug in the SDA or SDA Media Manager. I had a (not-terribly) special character in my password; when I removed that char, everything started working as expected.
