I commited a bigger patch: r81973 not only fixes "y" format, but also "u" and "Z". It does also add a lot of tests in test_getargs2.py for many string formats (not all, eg. "es" is not tested).

Even if I consider this as a bugfix, I don't want to backport to 3.1 because it might break programs which rely on this strange behaviour.

resolution:  -> fixed
status: open -> closed
