Make sure the implementation of this fix doesn't assume that any % is an
argument... it may be a literal %. (I ran into this one using termcap to
build up a format string for printf several years back... one of the escape
sequences didn't work on one terminal because it included a literal %. Had
to search for that and change it to %%).
