In the C code that generates that message, replace all instances of
printf("%s", foo->data) with printf("%*.s", foo->length, foo->data)

Then find all the instances where we do something like:

char *foo_str = foo->data

and replace with 

char *foo_str talloc_strndup(ctx, foo->data, foo->length)

(or any other similar construction to ensure we respect the length of
the input). 

The python bindings now take the LDB interface at their word, and only
supply the length-limited string, without a NULL terminator.  As such,
we are not finding bugs in all the code that assumed that there is
always a NULL terminator at the end of a ->data in a struct ldb_val.
