The problem was that for Windows DEPLOY_STRNCPY is defined as _tcsncpy_s() - version of strncpy with security enhancements. And that requires destination size > sourse size for passed arguments. For Unix\MacOSX DEPLOY_STRNCPY, destination size is not used.
7191616 issue happens because of error in sysFindSiPort(), but I also fixed same problem in sysFindSiNumber().
For Unix\MacOSX the issue does not exist.
