What is it that doesn't fail?  The expression in the title is the beginning of a triple quoted string with no closing triple quote.

If you mean '' % [1] not falling, it has been that way forever (well, python2.4 is as far back as I can test), so if it is deemed worth changing it certainly should not be backported.

I suspect it is some consequence of the C level similarities between lists and dicts, since '' % {<anything>} is supposed to not produce an error.
