Right, that's why I said "if it is a bug" :)

FreeBSD has the same behavior, so I'd actually prefer that Apple not "fix" this.  It would be nice if FreeBSD did and Apple adopted it, though, since only dropping the % is the least intuitive approach to handling unknown codes I can think of.  Is Apple tracking FreeBSD development at all these days, or are they a true fork now?
