"+" for amounts moved "to" is not supported, is interpreted as part of currency symbol; error message is not helpful #181

When the currency symbol comes before the number, the problem is at least understandable:

2014/04/30  USDplus
  assets $+2

hledger balance
$+2 assets
$+-2 expenses

2014/04/30 plus
    assets  +2

+2 assets
+-2 expenses

When the currency symbol follows the numbers, the error message is confusing:

2014/04/30 RUBplus
  assets  +2 RUB

hledger: "ledg" (line 2, column 14):
unexpected "R"
expecting postings
