You are right, this was a typo in the mail. The line really added is

let unused_later = Printf.sprintf "string" ;;

But this is just an example. I just have to use Printf module
to crash my program.

The following line added in the ml file used to generate my lib/dll is another example:

let unused a = Printf.printf "%f" ;;
