The problem is that "(null)" in the middle. We'll have to dig into how that got there... Reuti's probably right that something is somehow NULL in there, and glibc is snprintf'ing (null) instead of SEGV'ing.

Ralph and I are talking about this issue, but we're hindered by the fact that I'm at the MPI Forum this week (i.e., meetings are taking up all my days). I haven't had a chance to look at the code in depth yet.
