Subject: Oddity with mbbo strings

I am trying to pass the value of a stringout to a ZRST of a mbbo record.
I set the OUT field of the stringout to point to that field in the mbbo.
To my surprise the end of string \0 is not passed.

As a result if the new string written on that field is shorter than the previous one, well ...
the resulting value is a superposition of the 2 strings.
That is 
"LONG_STRING" -> ZRST   -- works as expected
"SHORT" -> ZRST         -- stored value os "SHORTSTRING" 

Is there a work around?
can sCaclout help?
