Description Florian Weimer 2013-10-22 10:31:25 EDT
xiosetenv() in sysutils.c misuses strncpy() because that function does not guarantuee NUL termination.  This also affects other uses of strncpy() in the code base, so a wrapper that mimics the strlcopy behavior would make sense, I think.

Has been fixed in upstream release
