BUG: %f modifier not working correctly

I am somewhat of a newbie but I think there is a problem with %f.

I tried the command "on_movie_end echo %f" and I got this: %f /var/lib/motion/snapshots/03-20070922200029.avi

meaning it was passed with the text %f.

command (in motion.conf file):

on_movie_end echo %f


%f /var/lib/motion/snapshots/03-20070922200029.avi


Motion version: 3.2.3
ffmpeg version:
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
