I have to note that the current code does not correctly check the
length and for short strings will access outside the array, so
it might be better to go with you suggestion anyway.
Either way, gmplayer is currently not maintained and we have been
suggesting to everyone to use smplayer.
On the other hand you seem quite motivated, if you are genuinly
interested in improving the mess that the Gui code is, I'd be in
favour of giving you commit access and relatively free reign over
everything in gui/.
If that suits you, read DOCS/tech/svn-howto.txt and ask Diego
for username/password (since we might soonish switch to git
and Diego is quite busy it might take some time for it all
to work out and you might have to send a public key for use
with git to someone else instead)...
