I cannot reproduce the problem here, but it looks to me that a little
before this, do_group does a sprintf(*s,..) to argument s, and I am not
sure if it is big enough to hold the result.  Could someone check this

If you can reproduce the problem:  printing out the contents of the
local variables and arguments could help (info args, info locals).
