Description H.J. Lu 2006-01-25 12:02:17 EST
dos2unix has

  fname_len = strlen(dir) + strlen("/d2utmpXXXXXX");
  if (!(fname_str = malloc(fname_len)))
    goto make_failed;
  sprintf(fname_str, "%s%s", dir, "/d2utmpXXXXXX");

It forgot the trailing '\0' when mallocing memory. I am attaching a patch.
