Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. This has been disconcerting, and also very disgusting. I ordered a long pipe cleaning brush and went to work on the supply hose. Gross! There was quite a bit of nastiness in there, even after soaking it in diluted vinegar overnight. After the scrubbing, I soaked it in bleach for a while and then flushed it with clean water.

I think it's all clean now, but I worry that this will happen again. I'm not sure what I can do other than repeat the cleaning procedure from time to time, before it becomes a problem.

So gross.
