Maybe it's better to fix this issue at the source instead of working
around it? If the returned string has a zero byte and the filename
doesn't, that is a bug.
Do you mind looking at fixing this?
Otherwise it would be nice if you file a bug in bugzilla with a test
case to reproduce, too.
Thanks (and sorry for the late reply)!
