There was a memory corruption bug happening while running the synthetic
event selftests:

The cause came down to a use of strcat() that was adding a string that was
shorten, but the strcat() did not take that into account.

strcat() is extremely dangerous as it does not care how big the buffer is.
Replace it with seq_buf operations that prevent the buffer from being
overwritten if what is being written is bigger than the buffer.
