Thanks for the report.

Yes, AFAICT there is nothing wrong with that format string.

No, there isn't much that can be done if we fail the allocation at
such an early stage.

That said, there is no need to print any warnings or error messages on
allocation failure, so technically they could be removed. It doesn't
really give us anything in case of existing code, though, and only
makes a potential for merge conflicts, so I'd just leave it alone.

Best regards,
