I was just going to reply the same thing.

We are reading past buffer, by up to 3 bytes, but properly detecting and
handling it internally.

However, in the self test, we are dealing with const strings, of known size.
Thus, on a picky compiler, it will not allow this.   Simple fix. Put a
buffer on stack in self test, large enough for the work, and use it.  This
would also allow us to force a non-aligned input for the password also.
