The root cause is that the source string address is NULL. Why this is so is still subject to investigation.
But initial work has discovered a weakness in the handling of the field "dirname" in the structure "dt_film_t". It is created with a fixed size of 512 bytes (which SHOULD be enough) but this size is not always checked.
What I've done, so far, is to replace the current definition with "gchar *dirname" with other appropriate changes in all affected files.
