std::istream::get(char*, size_type) doesn't store NUL on failure

         Key: STDCXX-60
     Project: STDCXX
        Type: Bug
  Components: 27. Input/Output  
    Versions: 4.1.2    
 Environment: all
    Reporter: Martin Sebor
     Fix For: 4.1.3

The program below aborts at runtime. According to,

"...if the sentry constructor [of an unformatted input function] exits by throwing an exception
or if the sentry object returns false, when converted to a value of type bool, the function
returns without attempting to obtain any input. In either case [...] unformatted input functions
taking a character array of non-zero size as an argument shall also store a null character
(using charT()) in the first location of the array."

$ cat t.cpp && nice make t -r && ./t
#include <cassert>
#include <sstream>

int main ()
    std::istringstream strm;

    strm.setstate (strm.failbit);

    char s [3] = { 'x', 'y', 'z' };
    strm.get (s, 2);

    assert ('\0' == s [0]);
    assert ('y'  == s [1]);
    assert ('z'  == s [2]);
