Bug Description

manpages.ubuntu.com doesn't display the complete manpage for printf.3 but stops at the embedded string "\0". From the displayed manpage (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/en/man3/printf.3.html):
"[...](including the trailing null byte ('"

From "man 3 printf":
"[...](including the trailing null byte ('\0')) to str.[...]"
