Do you pass the right length to scm_to_locale_stringn, i.e, the return
value of read-string!/partial?

Also, maybe there really are #\nul characters in the file and the
error message from scm_to_locale_stringn is entirely deserved.

This message means that SCM_CRITICAL_SECTION_START/END is used
improperly.  There are likely some improper uses in Guile itself (and
this issue is what is holding off the 1.8 release at the moment...),
so it would be good to know exactly what instance of
SCM_CRITICAL_SECTION_START/END is responsible for your abort.
