Ensure that the string we read from leftofffile is NULL
terminated; the buffer gets passed to strchr(), so
it's important that we ensure it ends with NULL.

Maybe just initialize the buffer..?

and then read no more than SMBUFSZ-1... I dunno, 6 one way, half a dozen
the other?

I like my bike shed pained red with white and blue swirlies. :)

The strings should be NULL terminated for the string ops. It makes more sense to NULL one byte than 1024. If the full SMBUFSZ bytes are desired, then bump the array for the NULL byte.
