Has anyone answered andreas' question from the "future" article?

If this function is accepting a pascal-syle string:

void func (char *domain)
        int     len = domain[0];

then there is a problem when the high bit of domain[0] is set (lengths greater than 127), it will be sign-extended to fill len., causing a very big buffer overrun later on.
