Axis Camera - Access Denied After PW Change With %

I'm hoping someone has run into this before...

I needed to change the root password on an Axis P3367, and by chance the password I chose contained the % character (not a big deal, right?). So, after changing the PW, it presented a credential dialog but would then not accept the password when I re-entered it. It also would not accept the previous PW, or "pass". So I power cycled and same thing. OK, I know, I know..."then obviously he just didn't remember the password he set it to". I thought the same thing but...

I then went to a second P3367 demo camera on the shelf also running FW 5.70 and I changed the root PW to something normal like "bravo933" and it worked as expected. OK, so let's give this other PW a try. I attempt to change to something with a % character (like kdje%1466) and same issue. It refuses to accept the new root password. Only way to fix it is a power cycle from front button push.

A few last comments: 1) I haven't checked on other FW's; only their latest. 2) Oddly, it WILL accept the % characters in the initial configuration screen.

Sooo...this is big problem because reaching the camera involves entering land co-owned by a nunnery and a nudist country club. Please do not make me roll a truck for a factory default. Please.

Any help will be significantly rewarded. Thank you.
