It is a bug. If you send a "label something#" to a canvas, there's no *good* 
reason why it *should* generate a "something$" label.
It was *implemented* like that (no matter how deliberately), and that's the 
cause of this bug.

Indeed I think that PD lacks a clean and simple escaping mechanim with which 
such problems would be avoided.
