Aki, I was wondering, does this bug also affect the changing of a cryptokey password using this command:

$ doveadm mailbox cryptokey password -u email at domain.tld -n NEW%PASSWORD -o OLD%PASSWORD

Do I need here also to double the '%' char in the -n (new password) and -o (old password) parameters ?
