It is an old habit from my embedded programming days.  Creating a large local
buffer uses up a lot of stack space and it can even prevent the program from
working if stack space is very tight.  Making the buffer static does not affect
the execution of the program (apart from increasing its data space requirement)
and it can allow the program to continue working.

In this particular case however I agree that is very unlikely that this change
is going to make any real difference.  If you really want I will revert it.
