Cannot use a variable in a $pages->find selector. Using the latest dev version of PW. Despite using $sanitizer->selectorValue it still returns an error

Error: Exception: Unknown Selector operator: '=$' -- was your selector value properly escaped?

I have tried various combinations. Here is a simple test example that should work, but gives the error :

$test = 'basic-page';
$test = $sanitizer->selectorValue($test);
$selector_test = $pages->find('template=$test');
echo $selector_test->count();

Note : Using the $pages->get selector works ok when using $variables

PHP does not parse variables in strings with single quotes.
$selector_test = $pages->find("template=$test");
