Bnd.bnd parsing broken or documentation bug?

I have been trying to get jacoco to work as described here (using bnd 6.0.0).

After some hours of experimenting I found that the only way to get this working is by putting the opening quote in front:

-runvm.coverage: \

We need the quotes because of the commas (removing them makes “append=false” an independent argument passed to the JVM, which responds that his is not a valid class name). But -javaagent is not a bnd instruction in this context, it’s an argument passed to the VM. I assume the bnd parser leaves the quotes in place and this results in -javaagent:"<file>=<agent args>" being passed to the JVM which makes the JVM argument evaluator assume that the first double quote is part of the agent jar’s file name.
