Reverting c0325b06382c would work as well..

Note: I believe Andrea's original goal was to just get rid of a
compiler warning from sprintf(). Stephen suggested to use
asprintf. Andrea's original solution to get rid of the compiler
warning would suffice. Maybe then an additional code audit to
ensure consistency on usage of s[n]printf could be done and
resolved separately.

Thanks for taking the time Daniel.
