Already done.

Actually, I couldn't see what it was supposed to do.  The very use of
strnlen() in that place looked like a bug to me.  So I simply replaced
it with strlen(), and the self-tests still work.  Maybe I am not aware
of something obscure specific to those formats.

Yes, I tested OpenSSL 0.9.7m and 1.0.0d.  Of course, these two formats
are disabled with 0.9.7m, but this test revealed an issue in rar_fmt.c,
which I patched in -RC3.
