Basically, it's a client bug.

Ideally, to solve cases like this we need a syntax to include nonprintable
chars, including NULL, for string options. Just adding NUL to all strings bound
to bite us when in some cases people would want that to NOT be done.

Today, this can be done clumsily in udhcpd.conf like this:

# For broken clients, add terminating NUL. 
#option bootfile "pxelinux.0"NUL - udhcpd doesn't support this syntax
option 0x43 7078656c696e75782e3000

Can someone confirm this works?

What syntax do you propose for strings to support it more nicely? "\0"?
