I can imagine two things which could went wrong:
a) libstdc (or whomever implements the vsnprintf()) doesn't know the `%zu`
format, so this one is skipped and the `len` argument is used for the (%s)
format
b) 32/64 bit mismatch - the format (count of bytes) of the `len` on the
stack doesn't correspond to the format (count of bytes) of the `%zu`
specifier, so for the second (%s) format, some `grabage from the stack` is
used

Both these two scenarios can lead to mysterious crashes ....
