Majeed could be referring to the ValueError that gets raised for this [only on Windows][1]. In Linux %f passes through silently. Maybe for 3.5 an alternate approach would be to disable the Windows CRT's invalid parameter handler using _Py_BEGIN_SUPPRESS_IPH and _Py_END_SUPPRESS_IPH.

Looking at this brought issue 10653 to my attention. It seems VC++ 14 has exacerbated that problem, but that the current solution no longer works even in 3.4.3 with VC++ 10. Should the issue be reopened or a new issue opened?
