Jean,

something bugs me here:

- either buf is supposed to be a nul-terminated string, in which
case if p is IW_ESSID_MAX_SIZE long there may be a bug (no '\0' at
the end of buf)

- either buf is not-supposed to be nul-terminated and the length
value will always be used, in which case the memset() looks
useless

I suggest that you revert the memset() to IW_ESSID_MAX_SIZE+1 so that
the last byte is cleared as well. Or am I missing something?
