I think this may have already been answered somewhere else, but
scnprintf tells you number of characters that actually fits into
the buffer whereas snprintf tells you the number of characters
that _would_ have fit into the buffer it were big enough.

Well, I think there are some in-flight patches that want to
change sun to a 64 bit value, which makes me think we want to
change SLOT_NAME_SIZE to 21...
