Summary:  locate fails to check input data with getline

Original Submission:  After original bug report by David, Bruno Haible wrote :-

In the findutils CVS, it's now around line 376 of locate.c. The bug is still 
there: No validity checks are made on the 'count' variable after c and 
optionally two more bytes have been read from the file.
