Sounds about right...  from the manpage:

       If  ap  is  passed to a function that uses va_arg(ap,type)
       then the value of ap is undefined after the return of that

Reading the rest of the page, however, I don't see any reason not to 
re-initialize a va_list with a new va_start afterwards, even if it its 
value does become undefined first.
