Well, is this really what sprintf should do? The actual newline->CRLF
translation normally happens at the time text-files are actually
written. I'm not sure whether doing this "internally" is the right way
to do. Actually writing the result of the expression above *should*
result in CR/LF being written. Are you operning the destination
file in text-mode? Call open-output-file with an additional #:text
argument, like this:

(define p (open-output-file "filename" #:text))
