I noticed that there were a few instances of sprintf in the codebase that weren't taking into account the destination buffer's size. This seemed a little dangerous to me as buffer runs can lead to invalid data as well as buffer overflow attacks.

Attached is a patch that replaces every sprintf instance with a call to sprintf.
