But what about this code and its commentary (from
next_element_from_c_string):

  /* IT's position can be greater IT->string_nchars in case a field
     width or precision has been specified when the iterator was
     initialized.  */
  if (IT_CHARPOS (*it) >= it->end_charpos)
    {
      /* End of the game.  */
      ...

This happens when the iterator is initialized by reseat_to_string.
Admittedly, it's not very practical to have such huge strings that are
padded to an even larger width...
