Writing over the end of a string

Is there any danger to doing this:

sprintf(buf, mob->long_desc   (which contains a newline code)

Then do this,

sprintf(buf + (strlen(buf) - 1), " more text\n");

Effectively writing over the first new line, adding more
text and then adding a new 'newline'.

It compiles fine and does not crashola the server.
