[Mono-dev] [PATCH] NULL terminate new strings beyond the end (rather than last char)

Strings are allocated with an extra character. I think this is added to have 
a NULL at the end anyway. But when the allocated memory is not zero-filled 
by the GC, only the last character of the string is zeroed that can be and 
most likely will be overwritten.

Please review and approve the patch.
