Yep, this is a buggy klogd issue, not a kernel issue. Anybody who does


instead of


[ and even "fprintf(file, "%s", message);" is acceptable, although not
evry efficient. ]

should have to write "I will think before I write code" a million times.

It's not the libs it's klogd itself. Upgrade klogd (and if it still
isn't fixed, tell the world)

No, keep the 100% - this happens in other situations too, and klogd
really _has_ to be fixed.
