 It seems that some apps have issues with the way the functions overridden
 in padsp operate. e.g. amsn crashes.

 In the code, there are some comments about how Firefox needs this response
 to not crash etc. It seems to me that the more sensible option is to rely
 on the original method in all cases that we cannot handle and thus any
 special handling like this should not be required.

 -padsp-fix.patch?revision=HEAD&view=markup This patch] makes these changes
 and also fixes some undefined behaviour when compiling with non-glibc
 backends (due to the fact that vsprintf may not handle NULLs nicely - see

 In our testing it fixes issues in amsn and does not have any adverse
 affect on firefox when testing.

 This could be related to #27.
