sprintf terminates the string for you (but see below).

no. You need to allocate enough space to print all digits and add a
terminating NULL. This is unrelated to sizeof(int).

However, sprintf() should _never_ be used. You should consider to use
g_strdup_printf() however which will allocate exactly the memory you
need w/o the possibilities of buffer overflows. If you absolutely want
to use static buffer, use snprintf().
