I have my favourite password with ! and \ characters, but I can't use it with Kubo.
Pre-start script fails with the following error:

/var/vcap/packages/govc/bin/govc: ServerFaultCode: Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.

After some digging, we found out that pre-start script transforms ! character to something else.
It works much better when we changed how password is passed to the following way

GOVC_PASSWORD=$'#&;^\ !%\'Az1'
