The ValueError is not a bug.  Not all format codes are supported on all platforms (we start from what the platform supports, and then we have a few we have implemented cross platform, but that isn't one of them).  We also pass through the behavior of the underlying system as far as handling unknown codes.  Whether that is the best policy or not is an interesting question, but one that should probably be addressed on python-ideas if someone wants to tackle it, since it has backward compatibility implications (and the wider discussion would affect the the behavior on FreeBSD as well, where unknown codes are handled differently than they are on linux, though they don't produce an exception.)

For the other I think you should open a new issue referencing the old one.
