fix to bad allocation size bug in control-panel (728 bytes, patch)

Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-07-06 16:47:13 EDT
control-panel allocates 'buf' of stat_buf.st_size bytes and proceeds
to write at buf[stat_buf.st_size] location.

Attached patch fixes also a minor issue of a type conversion which
kicks in when sizeof(size_t) != sizeof(int).

I thought that I submitted that bug a long time ago but it is still
present in 3.13-1 and bugzilla claims that there are no bugs filed
against control-panel.

Thanks for the tip.  Some of these fixes had already been integrated into the
CVS tree, but I made another once-over the source file.
