nsMemory::Clone doesn't append NULL so users must ensure one exists.

I apologize for sticking my nose into this bug, but I happened to read the patch
and I don't understand how it fixes the problem.

If the source strings are 0-terminated, then I don't understand what is wrong
with the original code; it seems to me it'll correctly clone each string
including its 0 terminator.

If the source strings aren't 0-terminated, then the original code could fail
with the symptom described here, because the strlen() call would return an
invalid length. But the new code in the patch also calls strlen() on the source
strings, so it would fail the same way.

I also wonder why the second copy operation calls strlen(aDir) instead of
strlen(aName), but the original code does that so maybe it's deliberate.

a fix

Yeah, I don't really mind the patch as long as the bug, which is the use of
aDir instead of aName is fixed. I would prefer though if this patch would be
used instead (both for GTK+ and Qt embedding code)
