Probably I found the culprit.  I introduced a bug in vfprintf when I
added thousands separator printing.  The result of the bug is that float
or double values got an extra decimal point.  The float value 1 got
printed as "1.", for instance.  I don't know how this relates to the
autom4ate case, but it should at least fix the libffi issue.  This
should show up in the next developer's snapshot.
