Do you ever find things are so messed up that stdio has trouble whereas
using write(2) with compile-time memory allocations for a buffer would

I hate it when that happens. Even worse is when adding the write(2)
with compile-time memory allocations makes the bug go away. I once
had to spend three days camped out in someone's office debugging a
compiler crash. The crash only happened 4 hours into a massive
multi-file compilation, and this guy's login session was the only one
where the problem reproduced under the debugger. Heisenbugs are hell.
