    I do not understand why I'm getting a segment fault from strcpy

must be doing something silly, I hope that someone can see what it is?  

How is fileselected declared? If as  char *fileselected, then you have to
allocate memory to fileselected first. It will work with a short string
like 1234, but not if the string is longer than 4 bytes or so. Remember
*fileselection is just a pointer - it doesn't have space yet. (you could
use strdup, which _does_ allocate memory ->  fileselected = strdup(...)

If defined as char fileselected[100] (or so) you might be exceeding
the [100] limit.
