As far as I remember, the ANSI C permits initialization of a char array
with a string of the same length and defines that the trailing \0 is
dropped in such cases. However, I cannot quote the right chapter and
verse by heart nor am I sure it's still permitted by C99, so better
check yourself.

Have a nice fortnight
