fix malloc and memcpy arguments

The attached patch fixes access-out-of-bound in slim.
The size argument of memcpy() and malloc() is wrong when modifying environment variables.
Patch tested by reporter and works as intended.
The problem was present, but luckily slim still works. With the new patch to support login.conf, the problematic variables are used, and the bug is triggered.
