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

    fprintf(file,message);

    instead of

    fputf(message,file);

    [ 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.
