Microsoft version of vsnprintf() behaves differently from the standard C version when there is not enough space in the buffer. 
Microsoft version doesn't null terminates its output under error conditions, whereas the standard C version does. On Windows, it returns -1. 
We handle both cases here and always return -1, and perform null termination.
