I'm also happy with that, but I'd really love to get correctness in
the server in the meanwhile. I've applied Soeren's and Walter's
suggestions and the offending memcpy() calls are apparently gone
(thanks to the glibc wrapper Aurélien Jarno implemented to report
memcpy calls with overlapping areas through syslog[1]), tested by
playing the resize-my-terminal-like-crazy game.

I'm about to send a follow-up to your initial patch, I tried to
preserve authorship information, but not exactly sure how to handle
the v2-with-a-different-author thing. Feel free to point any issue.
