When layering a store over multiple stores that fail to open, `libchannel' generates a segfault.

To test it just do `settrans -ac foo /hurd/storeio -T file one two', where `one' and `two' doesn't exist. `foo' will crash after a `echo bar > foo'.

This is due to two `of by one' bugs in `store_parsed_open' and `store_open_children' functions of `libstore'.

I have attached a patch fixing them and as a bonus slightly restructures the affected code in `store_open_children' to match `store_parsed_open'.
