The patch was already n 5.2, the issue is that the str (key) is not guaranteed to be NULL terminated (nor does it need to be), so when strlen() is attempted on top of it you could end up reading more data then necessary.

Sorry for my ignorance, but isn't the new code exactly equivalent to the old one, albeit a bit slower? I can't really see how a strndup() can fix a corruption there.. If there's some problem, probably it's deeper than this..
