It certainly can. :-(

Basically I was in too much of a hurry and misread the NetBSD man page
for vsnprintf(), leading me to write a nice implementation (well, I
think so :-) of an entirely incorrect design. :-(

Incidentally, when that was first pointed out to me I attempted to say
so on Bugtraq, in order to prevent further confusion; unfortunately that
reply doesn't seem to have made it out to the list.

I apologize for wasting your time, but I do appreciate your polite and
helpful reply. :-)
