Silly me. There's no newline there at all. AIUI, thats not even a valid 
tag, as my understanding of a tag is: 

A tag is from immediately following the colon in "arch-tag:" to the end
of the line.

So that's at least three bugs that this panic caught: 

1. Truncated tags
2. last byte in top-tag potentially truncated.
3. tree-lint isn't properly linting the tree for the above conditions.
