There is a check against that some lines above. But you are right.
Ideally, you should do a 

memset (filename, 0, sizeof (filename));
strncpy (filename, dir_name, sizeof (filename) - 1);

or some other implementation like strlcpy.

Whatever, the most important thing for me is that libltdl works, i.e.
that this bug gets fixed. Who can do that? When? I am really looking
forward to using libltdl as the idea is great. It just doesn't work
right now.
