I don't know whether you're misreading.  But printf("%s",XXX) is
semantically equivalent to puts(XXX) for all XXX for which the former
is well-defined, so it is an at least minimally justifiable

I still call it a bug, though, for the compiler to do this without its
being specifically requested to do so (-fgo-wild-with-stdio? :).
