While I occasionally enjoy puzzles, when I'm pressed for time it is nice 
to have a summary of the bug and the fix ;-) In this case I presume the 
"new StringBuilder('%') actually invokes the StringBuilder(int) 
constructor to set the initial capacity to the value of '%' instead of 
creating a StringBuffer with % as the first character.

Seems like a good candidate for JB's next edition of Java Puzzlers :)

Fix looks good to me.
