Go to groups.google.com. Enter a search term of $5 - yes, five dollars with the dollar sign. Once you get results, sort them by date. Now click on the "WEB" button on the top left. Your search query changes to $5$5. Whoops!

Yes, I know dollar signs are tricky to work with, but Google DOES actually work with them properly, finding results only with them and highlighting search results correctly. Also, this bug does not happen if you leave Groups results sorted by relevance rather than by date.
