When I add a line
	printf("%f\n", 0);
I do get a warning with -Wall:
	test.cc: In function `int main()':
	test.cc:6: warning: double format, different type arg (arg 2)

Similarly, /usr/include/stdio.h specifies __printf__ attributes [*] for
functions like snprintf, vsnprintf, vasprintf, asprintf, vdprintf and
dprintf. It does not do so for vfprintf. This looks like a bug in libc6-dev.
