    Fix disk name initialization in scout
    Scout needs to initialize names in scout_disk structures to prevent
    the use of uninitialized data.  However, '\0' is a NUL character
    constant, i.e., the integer value 0, which is interpreted as NULL
    (the pointer constant) in a pointer context, such as when assigned to
    a variable of type char*.  Since the name field in these structs is
    passed to printing routines, the safe initialization value is the
    empty string constant "", not a zero value.
