You know, if I were programming on Linux professionally rather than as a
hobby, stuff like this would drive me to drink. I mean, in this case it
is a return value on a pathological case, but actually, it's sort of my
point: C says, snprintf() is undefined with a buffer size of more than
INT_MAX, POSIX defines it, and GCC just goes with the ISO-C version --
because they can? Great!

Wanna bet there's more where that came from?
