I was trying to run AddCommentsToBam and with the -C flag, it was crashing when I had a colon in the string, so I had to delete it.

Steps to reproduce

gatk AddCommentsToBam -I=In.bam -O=Out.bam -C="Bad: comment"
gatk AddCommentsToBam -I=In.bam -O=Out.bam -C="Good comment"

Expected behavior

A new BAM with the comment should be created.

Actual behavior

I get this output: No value found for tagged argument: C=Bad: comment
