Changing the default behavior, especially on this old and itensiviely used 
feature and between two minor releases, will confuse the user. There are too 
many of them who do not read changelogs.

Wouldn't it easier and more flexible to introduce an escape for "%", i.e. 

The example would expand to:

sambaProfilePath: \\SERVER\User$\Profile\V%%G_osver%%

so it will also be possible to set

sambaProfilePath: \\SERVER\%U\Profile\V%%G_osver%%
