y'know what, in the context of fixing a printf I wasn't really
interested in looking that far into the scheduler.  A 20 char stack
variable and a string copy at shutdown isn't such a big deal.  If it
bugs you guys that much, why don't you just fix it?

Or are you worried about getting 15 emails about how you inefficiently
printing a non-critical string like I have? :)
