Actually, I added the ERR("pidl is borked\n") to detect the case where 
the PIDL itself was invalid, but that error message never shows.  I 
haven't found the exact reason for the original problem, but the code I 
wrote to avoid buffer overruns fixes the problem.

It's hard to find the original problem as using a +relay trace makes it 
magically disappear.  Perhaps initializing the buffer to a nul string 
also helps?
