Or could it be that '+' does something special in the shell.

Strangely both work for me, although it does appear that + has some
special value in a bash shell and should probably be escaped or quoted
(along with the rest of the string).

This might be much the same as having to escape \* to get wildcards to
work in yum, because bash interprets the wildcard first and yum doesn't
see what you expect it to see for the string.
