Sprintf seems to quietly fail (with no bad consequences) if it's first argument (LPTSTR pszTarget) is NULL. Is that so? I'd like to take advantage of that behavior.

It is *not* so. Depending on the other arguments, it will quietly fail,
noisily fail, or explode and kill everything in the neighborhood.
