simple json file with syntax error

When std.json.parseJSON is called on a string containing invalid JSON, the
returned exception always reports a syntax error on line number 1. The column
number seems to give the total number of characters parsed up to the point of
the error rather than the number of preceding characters on that line.
For example, calling parseJSON on the following:
  "key" : {
    "val1" : 1,
    "val2" : 2
  },  <------ syntax error on line 5, column 4
throws an exception that reports 
'Found '}' when expecting '"'. (Line 1:29)'

To parse, I am using "test.json".readText.parseJSON
