in this patch, name is not NULL terminated (see the caller, need to doublecheck
it's safe to replace = with \0, which it might not be if the same buffer is reused by
others.)

Indeed.

I'd do a bit deeper change then (or a set, I guess) to fix up some other wrinkles,
so probably not right away.

Thanks again!
