Not working is not working.
The only things making a difference there is security
concerns and ease of debugging/fixing.
Crashing loses in case the former exists, but it clearly
wins in the second one.
So actually, I generally consider a safe crash a good thing.
That said, I was rather thinking of something like below,
if that looks good to you (it could also check for NULL termination
or alternatively use memcpy, I haven't thought that through):
