That's not paranoid.  That's just inefficient.  The length argument has
to be based on the target size, NOT the length of the source.  If you want
to length of the source, that's what plain old strcpy does by definition.

I just found some of those in some other code I was cleaning up and
wasn't pleased with them there.  Just because it says strncpy doesn't
mean what you are doing is any safer than strcpy if you do it wrong.
