It looks like it is a bug, because yes, you should be able to escape things.
I would suggest an alternate approach to what you desire.  In our command
parser we check for dbrefs and objnames with:

    match_regexp("[#$][a-z_0-9]+", str)

Basically, it seems to work fine when $ is inside []...

I'll add it as a bug to the todo list.
