This is a bug report for perl from smylers@stripey.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.24.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

perldelta for 5.24 RC1 includes:

  sprintf '|%.*2$|', 2, 3 now returns |002|

That gives an error. Putting a d in there gives the stated output.
