For whatever reason, Raven chose to use strcpy and strncpy in a lot of places instead of Q_strncpyz. This can cause buffer overflows and overruns. There are only a few places i can think of that should be left. Ususally when the dest is a char *something, however a few can be still length checked only when you don't really know what length should be. Also, bg_vehicleLoad and q_shared really should be left alone.
