Problems with smbclient and clientgen

Hi folks,

I have just discovered that clientgen seems to use fstrings and
fstrcpy/fstrcat all over the place. fstrings are 128 bytes long.

Anyone using smbclient or clitar for long path names may be in for a shock.
I will have to fix that, and maybe move them all back to using pstrings and
safe_strcpy/safe_strcat ...
