Speaking of changes to emacs-24, may I ask why the bugfix for
bug#11374 has been committed to the release branch? It is not a
regression, and though it fixes a real bug, that bug has never been
reported in more than five years, not  even in bug#11374, which is
just the result of a survey of strncpy calls in the sources, I think.
The fix is relatively small, but not trivial enough that it couldn't
hide another bug in what is a crucial part of emacsclient.c.
