Description of problem:
During a code review, I found a couple cases where there was a
potential for buffer overflow in the netstat utility. I think a buffer
of 1024 was being strcat'ed to a buffer of 128. I'm not sure of the
likelihood that this could be used to crash the program, but the fix
is easy enough.
