Not sure if this an expected result or a defect, following usage will get a NaN

// ---> NaN
dojo.number.parse("01,23.00", {pattern : '00,00.00', locale : 'en'});

While the result is correct for

// ---> 123
dojo.number.parse("1,23.00", {pattern : '00,00.00', locale : 'en'});

Please try the test case to see the observations.

I think the second example should actually fail because 0 implies a mandatory digit, so both tests are failing

The Java number format syntax is a little odd. The common usage is 0 for required decimal places, and a single 0 to the left of the decimal point, with #'s everywhere else to represent optional digits. Usually you'd only put enough digits to show the first separator (i.e. thousands: #,##0) Anything beyond that is probably not used unless there's a second thousands separator -- to support the Indian number format which uses a mixture of two different groupings, something like #,##,###.0

The error you show above only seems to happen when the leading number is a '0', so I think that might be the bug you're after. Other inputs seem to work fine. We don't have a test case with a leading zero and a thousands separator.
