Fix a classic bug: copying a Haskell string with one of the C string
functions (in this case strncpy()) is wrong when the string contains
'\0' characters.

The symptom in this case is that Happy parsers created with -ag don't
work in GHCi, because the state tables are encoded as strings
containing lots of '\0' elements.
