Update of bug #28115 (project coreutils):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

Not a coreutils bug.  There has been no change in this behavior in coreutils'

$ /bin/printf --version | head -n1
printf (GNU coreutils) 6.10
$ src/printf --version | head -n2
printf (GNU coreutils) 8.1.2-f18ee
$ /bin/printf '%.*sn' 3 -----
$ src/printf '%.*sn' 3 -----

Rather, what you are probably seeing is that your current shell's printf
built-in does not implement the same POSIX extensions as GNU coreutils'
