More to the point: what about the multiplication in printTableInit?
The cat's been out of the bag for quite some time before we get to

I'm more than a bit skeptical about trying to do something about this,

practical. The OP clearly hasn't tested his patch on actually
overflowing query results, and I don't care to either.
