In etags.c Scheme_functions, I think the loop

    while (notinname (*bp))

will take bp past the '\0' string terminator, because '\0' is a

I can't spot any obvious ill effect, only that a line of only


is tagged, perhaps depending on what was on the line before it.  In any
case doesn't sound good to look into possibly uninitialized parts of the
input buffer.  (Another helper skip_notinname() to try to be clearer
than a double-negative loop :-)

        * etags.c (Scheme_functions): Don't go past '\0' terminator.
        (skip_notinname): New helper.
