The fact that you had to ask this question - and probably had to look that up in the GLib documentation - suggests that there should be a comment before the g_array_new() call to indicate that the first argument being TRUE adds the necessary null terminator.  (*I* certainly didn't remember that the argument to g_array_new() indicates whether to put a zero terminator into the array; I suspect few people who aren't heavy GLib developers would know that without looking it up.)
