Uhm no it looks like that char-after is not caring about the end of

But maybe I should change my definition, since it's a string not a char
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defconst default-closing-char ";"
  "default closing char, change in newline-force-close-alist if needed")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
