I spent more time looking at this, and it seems that only the initial
creation of this string needs the +1, since all other operations are
byte-based not NUL-terminated string based. It's a big odd, and I
might try to clean it up differently, but as it stands, this is okay.
(See inode.c which doesn't include the trailing NUL byte.)
