Right, I noticed but forgot to mention setting mb->error becoming redundant, thanks.

As for the error message, if you grep around a bit you'll notice that the common pattern for these things is:

<error message>:<what>:<why>

...where <what> is a file name or similar, and in this case it'd be the macro, and <why> is the strerror(errno) / %m. It might actually be the unexpanded macro that makes it easier to trace the origin, but not sure about that.
