How are you running the translator? :)

When trying out translator development stuff not long ago,
the best way to catch printf() statements is by starting
the gluster process you are interested in (eg glusterfs)
from the command line, using the --debug flag.

For example:

  $ sudo glusterfs -f /path/to/my-nfs-server.vol --debug

The "my-nfs-server.vol" file there was just a copy of the
normal Gluster NFS .vol file, with my (in-development) new
translator added to.

Does that help? :)
