Found it, my bad. I malloced() one byte short in the
version of the patch that is used now, Windows apparently
doesn't care about that, but it breaks on Unix (most of
the time).

It used to work OK, I am quite sure of that, so it looks
like there was a mixup somewhere along the line. I have
a two-line change for texmfmp.c, attached.

Martin, should I commit this to TL or do you have other
pending patches?

Best, Taco
