go 1.6 (tip)

https://play.golang.org/p/2Uj0ZHSSLr

package main

import (
    "fmt"
)

func main() {
    fmt.Printf("|%12.8v|\n", (*int)(nil))
    fmt.Printf("|%12.8v|\n", nil)
    fmt.Printf("|%12.8v|\n", new(int))
}

Output:

|<nil>|
|       <nil>|
|  0x10434130|

would have expected padding also applies to (*int)(nil) as does with a non nil pointer.
