I'm aware how newbie-like this makes me sound, but this is the explanation I have so far. As discussed in this thread it appears that passing a float to vararg functions like printf results in a double being pushed on the stack. Any reason for this? Any way to disable this behavior?

This has nothing to do with C++, but is the standard way C passes arguments. All floating-point arguments (float and double) are passed as doubles, while integer arguments (char, short, int) are passed as int''s (or was it long''s, I can''t remember).
