SF bug/patch #1433877: string parameter to ioctl not null terminated

The new char-array used in ioctl calls wasn't explicitly NUL-terminated;
quite probably the cause for the test_pty failures on Solaris that we
circumvented earlier. (I wasn't able to reproduce it with this patch, but it
has been somewhat elusive to start with.)

-# Solaris (at least 2.9 and 2.10) seem to have a fickle isatty(). The first
-# test below, testing the result of os.openpty() for tty-ness, sometimes
-# (but not always) fails. The second isatty test, in the sub-process, always
-# works. Allow that fickle first test to fail on these platforms, since it
-# doesn't actually affect functionality.
