 In off-ticket correspnodence, someone pointed out to me that there's a
 RETURN VALUES section which specifies the existing return values.
 So the manpage contradicts itself, and needs updating whether or not
 anything is done to the code - either the RETURN VALUES section needs
 updating or the description needs to note that the return value is not
 an aspect of printf's interface which is carried over to printw's.
 Naturally, I'd prefer to see the printf-like behaviour, since that's
 the more useful, but, if SUS specifies the less informative behaviour,
 then this really is just ("just", heh) a doc-bug.
