I see what you're up to, but there would be two reasons not to drop the
trailing \0. First, the \0 is part of the "file content" in a way.
Second, it would break backward compatibility with applications using
/proc/registry. This latter point concerns me a bit, though it can
naturally only affect Cygwin applications.
