[PATCH xscope] Use strncpy rather than strlcpy as it is not available on Linux

From: Gaetan Nadon <nadon at IBMT43.(none)>

Because it is available on other platforms, it only fails on Linux.
strncpy should be safe enough in this situation where a constant is copied.
The xserver private impl of strlcpy is not available to apps.
