fyi - printk bug?

Whenever I try to print a negative number using printk and a %d format
it would start printing blank spaces forever.

in the file - c/src/lib/libc/printk.c

in function - printNum()

I changed the maxwidth-;

to if (maxwidth) maxwidth-;

That seems to fix the problem.
I am using version 4.5.0 but the problem is also in the latest snapshot.
