The '$' symbol has a special meaning in the sprintf format string and must be escaped if intended to be used as a literal character. That fact is very briefly described in an offhand manner and, as a result, I, dummy, have twice this year wasted lots of time finding my error. I propose some solutions:

  1. better describe it in the docs
  2. file an issue with Rakudo to generate a better error m
