Is this problem still current? If so, the code that emits the line that
breaks is on line 354 of orbit-idl-c-headers.c, and the corruption happens
at the end of a very long printf format string. The fact that four bytes of
the format (one of which is \n) are replaced with five bytes of trash makes
me suspect it's happening in the compiler, before the \n is processed. So,
(1) try running strings on the binary and see if the format string is there
and whether it's intact or corrupt; and (2) see if splitting that format
string up into multiple reasonable-sized pieces makes the problem go away.
