I didn't notice it; your test noticed it and nagged me to take a look!
;-)

The verbose output from the test made it clear that, rather than the
expected truncated output, it was returning an empty string. A quick
trip to the debugger clearly showed strbuf_detach() clearing the len
and alloc fields of sb_dst, which was then passed to strbuf_attach().
So, I didn't really do much. :-D

The compiler was gcc, but that doesn't really matter much.
