This looks like a mechanical or semi-mechanical fix... I think it
misses a couple of things.

Firstly this code pattern appears twice in the file but you have only
fixed on of those instances. If this fix is required then both should
be changed.

Secondly cphold is a pointer into kdb_buffer itself which means that
*neither* strcpy() nor strscpy() are safe (since their behaviour is
undefined) so we should probably be using memmove() anyway.


Daniel.


PS there is an range change since a sub-string is always shorted than a
string (albeit an implicit one based on correct termination handling)
so a strlen()+memmove() fix is probably OK here.


Daniel.
