Log message:
	Revert to old glibc behaviour for vsnprintf used in emit_to_buffer function.
	
	Revert to old glibc behaviour for vsnprintf used in emit_to_buffer fn.
	Otherwise, the check that follows would be wrong for new glibc versions.
	This caused the rh bug #633033 to be undetected and pass throught the check,
	corrupting the metadata!

 ==================================
+  Revert to old glibc behaviour for vsnprintf used in emit_to_buffer function.
   Use dynamic allocation for metadata's tag buffer (removes 4096 char. limit).
   Add random suffix to archive file names to prevent races when being created.
   Reinitialize archive and backup handling on toolcontext refresh.
