    Late complaint but anyway... :-)

    It was wrong to call ide_fixstring() on unterminated strings and expecting 
them to become terminated strings after that; plus it was useless to add 2 
characters padding at the end. When these variables were the fields of 'struct 
ide_tape_obj', those bytes were 0 because of the variable of this type being a 
static array. When they became local variables, they got garbage bytes at the 
end which ide_fixdriveid() either honestly copied when compressing spaces or 
just left where they were...

    Should've rather changed the string format to print only N characters max...

MBR, Sergei
