In fbopen_for_read() and fbopen_for_write():

-   if(!(fbfl->name = malloc(strlen(fname)))) {
+  if(!(fbfl->name = malloc(strlen(fname) + 1))) {

There may be some other string malloc's in there that should allocate an extra
byte for the trailing '\0'.  I just added 1 to all of them since it's
temporary, it's not around for long, and it's easier than looking into it.
Maybe someday I will.

p.s.  I still have no plans to do anything with the public release.  I just
happen to be redebugging it for a new mud.  If I have some free time I may
release a pl15 version with all the bugfixes I've been doing.
