Step template check-box parameters are always evaluated as 'True' even though the parameters are set to 'False'

We have a step template, in which, two check-box type parameters are defined and defaulted to value 'False' (please see StepTemplate.png).

However, we found that when we engage the step template, the check-box parameters are evaluated as 'True'. But the parameter detail clearly shows that the check-box is not checked. (please see UsingStepTemplate.png and UsingStepTemplate2.png)

If we go ahead and run the deployment, the task log shows that the parameters are correctly evaluated as 'False'.

So we think this is probably a UI issue? Not sure if anyone already reported the same problem.

We see this problem in v4.1.8, but v4.1.9 seems to also have this issue.

Thanks,

Ge
